ROKclimb was founded by Bae Il Han and Bryan Hylenski (KOTRI.org founder.) They have built ROKclimb to act as a bilingual tool for finding information on how, when and where to climb in South Korea. This is a fully functioning app designed to collect information and provide a basic wikipedia style interface for our South Korean climbing database. We would love the community’s help to add, update and maintain the database with new and current information.
Bilingual Wikipedia style, route based database - Community developed and supported by allowing additions and modifications by users. This database contains approach information, local vendors, route/crag/area status, camping info., first ascent stats, route photos, etc.
User Profile Page - Allows users to select a default language, update their account info and store their climbing resume/project information.
Quick Search Page - Find climbing in your area or around South Korea.
Advanced Search Page - Helps users find crags in specific location, containing specific grades, ratings or styles/types of climbing.
Rating System (1-5 Biners) to tell users how climbing areas and specific routes rank amongst folks in the community.
Approval system – To insure modifications/changes are monitored by local community members to keeping database integrity.
GPS mapping - So users can quickly use the map feature on their phone to locate and get directions to the crag.
Points system – Given for user interaction with ROKclimb. Points are awarded for adding new areas, updating routes, modifying crag information, etc. Points will be used in the future with our business partners to supply users with discounted products, rewards/awards and free products.
User Favorites – Keep your favorite crag information handy.
User Project Page - Users can keep track of their projects around Korea.
User History Page – User can keep track of the climbs they have sent, onsited or even redpointed. Build your South Korean climbing resume as you move up thru the grades.
Sync Function – Allows users to work offline with our app, so users can store database info, project and history information locally on their phone, and access it offline.
