Mobile Guidebook App

The Climbers’ Club electronic guidebook application is available on iOS.

iOS AppiOS App
Initially the App is available on Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and – if you fancy taking one to the crag – iPad and iPad Mini. Please note that the App is designed for the smaller iPhone and iPod Touch devices as these are more likely to be taken to the crag.). We will be launching on Android devices in the not too distant future.

You can access the App Store directly on your iOS device. There’s is no need to ever use iTunes. Look for the App Store icon on the home screen. Or, you may download using iTunes on your PC or Mac and synchronise to your iOS device in the normal way if you prefer.

All paid-for guidebook packages are associated with your ID so if you upgrade or loose your device all packages may be restored to your new device. Packages may also be selectively removed, and restored, to your device to save storage space if required.

Technical Requirements

  • An iPhone 3GS or better; a 4th generation iPod Touch or better; or an iPad 2 or better.
  • An App Store account to buy and download content. The App itself is free direct from the App Store. It comes complete with a sample of Climbers’ Club guidebook information.
  • iOS 6 or better. (It’s free to upgrade so why not go straight to the latest version, the App looks even better running on iOS 7.)

The Future

Back in 1909, with Lliwedd, the Climbers’ Club published the world’s first “pocket size” climbing guidebook. Now in 2013 the Club is perhaps helping to usher in a new era in guidebook publication. Imagine, with your support, in the very close future you could be carrying every route description you’ll ever need on one small device in your shirt pocket! (If you are worried about taking your expensive smartphone on to the crags, perhaps consider picking up a secondhand iPod Touch on eBay for a few quid.)
