About this app

Access an entire bookshelf of rock climbing, bouldering, and backcountry skiing guidebooks on your Android device, even beyond the reach of cell phone coverage. rakkup reinvents the outdoor guidebook for the smartphone era.

We've partnered with Beacon Guidebooks, Wolverine Publishing, and other authors and publishers around the world to bring you rich guidebooks complete with color photos and topo drawings.

Browse climbs and ski descents on a map or in the list format of your choice, filter and search in seconds, then navigate using your phone's GPS with a single tap. The app navigates you through the trail system to your climb, turn by turn, and tracks your backcountry snow adventures with offline topo maps and slope angle shading.

Once you choose a route to climb the App works as advertised. If you are trying to find a route to climb the app is frustrating. Navigation feels clunky and counter intuitive. You need to navigate very far into the climb to find relevant info like the number of pitches. Its especially frustrating when you are used to seeing info for several routes at once, like on a single page of a guide book. While not perfect, Mountain Project's UI is far more friendly.

Awesome tool for any climber. The GPS is invaluable for getting to far-away crags from the trailhead. It isn't always SUPER accurate, but it is close enough to where it will DEF help get you to the crag you're looking for. Occasionally there are issues with the app, but support is VERY fast at responding to get them remedied. Lots of guide books available for major crags both in and outside the US, excellent photos, great reviews, ratings, etc. And it's really nice to NOT have to carry a guide book.

Installed update. UI still difficult to use. E.g. trying to filter climbing routes for Joshua Tree by grade is almost impossible, since the slider is very hard to set to a particular grade. Also, if I recall correctly the previous version allowed filtering by both sun and shade. Now i can only filter bu sun. No way to find climbs that are in the shade at a particular time of day. Filtering is what I use the app for, everything else is much easier in either printed book or mountain project

Hi Andreas, you can filter on either sun or shade. Just tap on "Sun" and it's a "Spinner" control you can change. I've modified this in our most recent release to make the choice more obvious. Anything about the UI that you find difficult to use, if you're willing to take the time to write us at support@rakkup.com we'd really love the feedback.
