Great for finding routes, and pretty ok for logging them. I wish it allowed you to save projects, but I'm fine without that feature. Despite clearly intedning to include social features, the social aspect of the app is severely lacking. You cant message members and friends, and finding other users is much more difficult than need be, even after following them. Furthermore, comparing yourself to friends is near impossible, and instead the app shows random people around the world.

Cool app! Lots of functiona improvement neededl. Being able to save attempts w/o ticking, filter routes by newest, and exclude already-sent climbs from the list as well as making it so previous ascenys don't still have a "new!" Tag over them would be nice. Also would be neat for route setters to be able to add ungraded/mystery climbs where senders can suggest any grade, and for setters to add pics to new things :) Would also be nice to have a section for a bio/social media on a profile❗🤘

I wanted to try this for the training features, initially it looks like it should be a great app, the interface seems great & easy enough to use. Unfortunately the app is extremely buggy which seems to be driven by connection to the server (using both WiFi and 5g, I dread to think how bad it could be in a remote location). Just logging in takes numerous attempts. Right now I can't experience enough of the app to decide if it's worth paying for, which suggests it probably isn't.
