I have used this app for a few months now. The new additions the developer has been adding have been fantastic! Was just wondering if there was any way to make it so the touch screen locks once you start a climb? I have done many sport climbs and find myself accidently brushing the screen causing the activity to pause. Apart from this small detail the app is fantastic and will continue to use on my adventures

Great app for climbing. Makes fun
4. oktober 2021 | Version 3.3.2
I use this app to track how many climbs ( bouldering) I do per session.
Simple app works well for any beginner to intermediate climber.

Great app, but I wish there was an easier way to see the grades of the routes I climbed. So far as I can see, you can go into laps with your phone in landscape mode and check each individual climb, but I'd like to see something telling me exactly how many of a certain grade climb I completed and how many tried I did for that grade. It tells me on my watch while I'm climbing, and I wish that that feature could be migrated to the app
Overall, great to use while climbing, just not as helpful as I would have liked afterwards

Nice, but unfortunately I cannot view climbs from previous sessions. In the Connect app I can't see the grades like I recorded them (French system, e.g. 5c+). The only thing I can see is how many climbs I did, this is very disappointing. The data I see with "view climbs" during a session should be accessible somehow after the session is saved, to make this app way more beneficial.
Edit/v2: I just saw in responses of other reviews that you can rotate to landscape and scroll to the right in the LAPS view to see the recorded grades! Not very handy but better than nothing → changed rating to 5* :-)

Took a bit of getting used to with touch screen on vivoactive but now I’ve mastered it I love it. Thanks so much for making the app. Much appreciated. Is there any way of seeing your data on garmin iq etc so you can see history of climbs?
30. juli 2021 | Version 3.3.1
I tried it out for the first time yesterday at the climbing gymn and was very impressed.
A few minor suggestions:
- add a hint about rotating the screen in Garmin Connect to the description. I only found it in many of your responses.
- configurable data fields for rest screen. I know I can scroll, but the info I'd like to see at a glance: rest time, time of day, number of climbs. I know the grade of my last climb and usually don't care about the climbing time, so I'd rather scroll to get that information
- besides the grade, a selection of the type (lead or toprope)

Great app! I have been using it for about a year now. It would be awesome if there was a feature where you would be able to see the grade of routes you climbed in a previous session.

hi, you can see the grades of previous sessions in Garmin Connect - In the mobile apps, go to the Laps section of the climbing activity and turn the phone horizontally

Thank you for bringing a climbing app so those of us that aren't on the Fenix 6 or Forerunner 935 can still track our climbs.
Note: If you're indoor climbing in the US, you'll want to select the "Yosemite" option, not the climbing wall option, as most gyms use the Yosemite Decimal System. After you select Yosemite, you can then enter your level, so if you're climbing a 5.11a, you'll select 1, followed by 1, followed by a.
So for the comments below regarding how climbing wall only goes up 9, and you're trying to log a 5.10 and higher, select the Yosemite standard.

Love this app, but haven't been able to use it the past few months. Every time I try to start the boulder activity on this, the green check mark is gone to verify the grade, and when I press the area where it was my watch will go black and vibrate until I force turn off my watch. It only seems to happen on Bouldering. Unfortunately the last application update didn't fix the issue or the few system updates that have happened since the issue started.
8. maj 2021 | Version 3.2.2
Takes a few minutes to work out how to use the app but once you do it's great and pretty intuitive! Thanks to the developer!
24. april 2021 | Version 3.2.2
Very nice app, would be great if the app could populate the informations on the standard bouldering and indoor climbing activities in the connect app
24. april 2021, eran_levi
hi, the info is there :) - go to the Laps (Splits) section in the Mobile Connect app, turn the phone horizontally and scroll all the way to the right
27. marts 2021 | Version 3.2.2
Enjoyable app! Would be good to see ascebt time for the each individual climb in the data page. Also I inputted the wrong YSD level and couldn't change it after starting the climb. It gave me the option to change climb type but couldn't input a level.
I just need to remember to statt the new climb every time I ascend!
27. marts 2021, eran_levi
hi, before you ascend you need to press the Lap key / gesture and select the level
3. marts 2021 | Version 3.2.2
I’m also looking for a climbing wall/top rope grade higher that 5.9, I don’t see it with this app.
9. februar 2021 | Version 3.2.2
It looks like the rating can only go up to 9. Is there a way to indicate a route rated higher than 9?
13. januar 2021 | Version 3.2.2
Best application for climbers!
29. december 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Very good. I am using a Vivoactive 4. Intuitive button presses, similar to other activities (same pause button; lap button for next climb). I enjoy how it senses a decent and automatically asks whether the climb was successful. Data is clear in the Connect app (after rotating phone). Possible tweaks I can think of: to unpause by pressing the same pause button (currently have to press the screen to unpause); to disable pausing by pressing the screen (it can get knocked and pause accidentally); and a display of the current time of day on the rest screen (I have found myself asking a friend for the time so as to not end the activity, which seems silly while wearing a watch!). Thanks!
31. december 2020, eran_levi
hi, thanks for the suggestions! Time of day is already there in the 3rd screen :) - Scroll up twice in the Rest screen to get there. You can also long press the screen to return to the watch's main screen, as in other apps.
13. december 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Thank you buddy, I am using this app for a long time. But want to learn is there any possibility to see how many route we climb in connect page, and route detail without turn mobile horizontally, instead of seeing “km”. Like new garmin indoor climbing activity. And can we change order of the data in app. For example rest time and day of the time in same page. Thanks again for your effort. Really helps us.
11. december 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Great app!!! Thank you for your work!!!
Just one thing, is it possible to complete the climb manually?
11. december 2020, eran_levi
hi, you can turn off the Auto Climb feature from the app's settings menu
5. december 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Great app buddy!!! thx you so much!!!
19. november 2020 | Version 3.2.1
Great app, but the there is a difference between the Fb-Scale (french bouldering grades) and the French Scale for regular rock climbs (which is used here in the app as "climbing wall").
12. november 2020 | Version 3.2.1
Pretty great! It would be easier to use yosemite if the first number was just 6-12 and the second was A-D, but that’s a very minor complaint. Thanks for making this!
3. november 2020 | Version 3.2.1
I read the other reviews before downloading to be sure this is the app I want. Played around with it on my Fenix 5x Plus to get a feel for the interface. Very intuitive, got comfortable within a few "laps." Moved to garmin connect to check the log, it has all I feel I need, successful/unsuccessful (laps page), time to climb/ rest and heart rate tracking. Super excited to use this at a gym or boulder field in the near future! Only goes to V-9, but I was maxing out at V-4 before the pandemic so this won't affect me for a while. Considering garmin doesn't have a bouldering activity for my watch, this is perfect.
17. oktober 2020 | Version 3.2.1
I love the concept and the feature on my Forerunner 945. I was surprised to see the option to to switch the discipline from Boulder to wall climb on the app of the watch and identifying the skill level. I was however disappointed when I synced the workout to Garmin Connect and did not see a detailed summary. Also the disciple was not rock climbing rather Boulder indoor gym workout. Thank you though.
18. oktober 2020, eran_levi
hi, 1) you can see the details of the climbs by going to the Laps section of the activity and scroll all the way to the right. 2) Unfortunately it is not possible to set the activity type to Boulder / Indoor Climb in 3rd party apps.
18. september 2020 | Version 3.2.1
Nice app! Is there a way to see how many routes I climbed and if they were successful or not on my phone? I can see it when I'm logging the climb on my watch, but if I try to look at it afterwards I can only see the "laps" with no information on whether I completed it or not.
18. september 2020, eran_levi
hi, the app adds the number of climbs and # of successful climbs to the summary section. Also, for each lap (climb) the app adds the climb name, successful or not and the altitude gain. To see those, go to the laps section, turn your phone horizontally and scroll all the way to the right
