Climbing Log

I figured this could be a nice way to keep track of what I climbed, when, with who, and in what style. I'm also noting any noteworthy training. Making it public can make it easier for friends and prospective partners to see at what level I'm currently climbing and the type of climbing I'm doing.

Ratings & grades are those encountered on the route but may not be the official rating.
