The Gunks app provides digital guidebooks for rock climbing and bouldering written by local authors.
Climbs are accessed from a list, which can be searched and filtered. Selecting a climb reveals a base photo, the route's description, and a high-resolution zoom-able aerial photo, topo, or GPS-enabled map. The photos include belays, descent information, variations, and new link-ups.
The app uses GPS to provide navigation and find the nearest climb. It also includes a Tick List & To-Do List with cloud backup.
