About this app

KAYA is your climbing guide. Climbers use KAYA to discover climbs, share beta, log sends, and track progress. Download and join the most psyched community in climbing.

-Guide-
All the data, beta, and resources in one place. KAYA PRO makes outdoor climbing more accessible and convenient than ever before with verified GPS coordinates, interactive topos, and detailed climb descriptions. Official KAYA Guides are available for classic areas like Bishop, Joe’s Valley, and more — all available offline for when the service gets rough.

- Track Progress -
With thousands of gyms and climbing areas in our database, KAYA offers a superior logging experience. Videos, ascents, comments, and star ratings are all available within each climb page. If you’ve kept a logbook with another app or website in the past, you can easily upload it into KAYA through your profile page.

- Connect -
KAYA is community-focused. You’ll be notified when your buddy breaks into a new grade so you can leave ‘em a fist-bump and a comment. In-app messenger allows you to connect with other climbers, and, if your gym is on KAYA, receive new set notifications when the routesetting team finishes slinging the freshies.

- Compete -
KAYA challenges are one of the best ways to stay motivated and interact competitively with the climbing community. Go up against the world’s best or compete with your friends at your local competition.

It doesn’t stop there. We are always making changes and improvements to KAYA. Keep your updates turned on so you won’t miss a thing.

Update: 12-7-23 Credit where credit is due, a lot of my nits were addressed and the app is in a much better place. OLD REVIEW: One of the least usable apps I've ever encountered. Specific gripes: - Incredibly unresponsive menuing - Sideways swipes have less priority that vertical scrolling, so performing any sideways actions is very difficult - Changing screens is very slow, and doesn't ever improve - Gym maps are slow, icons on the map overlap and often do not respond to touch

The interface is nearly unusable. Every single action takes several seconds to execute, and about half the time it doesn't actually do what you're asking for. In the gym map view, I'm constantly getting snapped into and out of random areas or the detail view of a random route. I can't believe this app advertises itself as a flagship product, and the developers have the gall to demand paid subscriptions. It has THE worst performance of any app I have ever downloaded.

This app was great before the monetization changes. Being unable to filter out climbs I've already sent with a free account, which is frankly the bare minimum I would expect an app designed for tracking climbs to do, is ridiculous. EDIT 11/23: They have reinstated the ability to filter, so I'm raising my rating to 4 stars. The one fix I would still like to see is filtered climbs update in real time when you send something. Currently you have to restart the whole app to get it to do that.
