  1. Purchased the App this morning (Oct 6) soon after I read on Chockstone it was available.

    It’s great and points the way to a new direction for climbing guides.

    I particularly like the way I can sort climbs in various ways, not just for the crag as a whole (this is available in the print guide) but for a specific section of cliff. This feature virtually gives me manipulative access to the underlying route database.

    Way of the future and here now!

  2. Hey Kevin, glad you like the app. I think one of the apps great advantages is the fact you can carry it up longer multi-pitch routes without having to drag up a heavy print guide. And I agree with you about the sorting feature. Great to be able to see a listing of climbs (and their grades) in any given area (rather than the crag as a whole).
