Cl-app! is an Android featured ticklist app that intends to help you keeping track of your climbing improvements. You can insert climbing areas that you have visited and routes that you climbed there. Various metadata for can be saved for areas and routes like grade, height, exposition, climb style, and so on. New ascents can be entered including the type of the ascent, like on sight, flash, red point, lead or top rope.
The information entered will be used to calculate several statistics. Each area keeps track of its climbed height and all the ascents that happened there, furthermore an overall value for your climbing fitness (OCF) is calculated on all of your ascents. This value relates for each ascent the last 20 ascents' grade and ascent style. Only the best 40% of the last 20 ascents are taken into account. Since release 1.0.2 also the overall climbing robustness (OCR) value is calculated. It is like OCF calculated for the last 20 ascents and depicts your stability while climbing (if you have very easy ascents and very hard ones mixed up). Stability in this case means standard deviation and unlike OCF all the last 20 ascents are taken in account. Since Version 1.0.7 you can choose between different periods of 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100 ascents.The app uses GPS for locating your routes and the internal Android camera app to get pictures of your routes. Located routes can be displayed in a map.
The app features various settings and is localized for English and German language.
The app is intended to help you keeping track of which routes you climbed, especially the statistical values shouldn't be taken to serious. They only give you a hint about what is going on right now. There might also be changes in the future for the formulas that are used i.e. the number of ascents at one route will be taken into account, so that routes that are climbed very often receive less points.
Have fun and enjoy!
++ I came up with an idea on how to deal with indoor routes already. So just follow these steps:
1. Add your indoor gym as new area
2. Add a new route, an call it after its grade.
3. Each time you climb a route of this grade in this gym, you simply add an ascent to your route (call it 6a i.e.)
4. You will get less points, when you repeat one route a lot, so this takes in account that indoor climbing is easier most of the time :)
++ Version 1.1.0 features a completely new layout and offers direct access to the main features for you.
++ Version 1.1.2 features a new diary activity where you get information on when you climbed what route. The information is aggregated on year/month/day basis. You can access it in the options menu of the area/route list
++ Be sure to backup cl-app! regularly with the internal backup mechanism, so that no higher influence leads to data loss. A automated backup feature will be implemented in future.
