rakkup is the first and only mobile climbing app that calculates your best approach route and navigates you through the trail system to your climb, turn by turn. Never get lost again! Produced with support from Outdoor Research, rakkup reinvents the climbing guidebook for the smartphone era. We’re partnering with guidebook creators like Wolverine & SuperTopo to bring you rich, detailed guidebooks complete with the most accurate and informative beta. Free sample climbs from SuperTopo’s Red Rocks Climbing title are included in the app so you can try it today.
Navigating with rakkup is much more than just looking at dots on a map. Only rakkup steers you precisely down the right trails and turns with an easy-to-follow arrow and a moving map view. Other guidebooks just give you a short textual description of an approach, or show you a blue dot on a map with no information about canyons, dead-ends, or trail quality. In rakkup, we’ve combined state-of-the-art GPS navigation programming with extensive data about every climb and trail. Each rakkup guidebook includes a detailed map of the entire trail system. The app instantly and continuously calculates the best route from your current position to your climb, even taking into account fourth- and fifth-class approach options, and gives you turn-by-turn guidance. A compass with an arrow, and a moving map, always tell you where to go and keep you on track.
We’re partnering with professional guidebook creators to build the most convenient climbing guidebooks ever produced. You’ll have fingertip access to the best climbs at your favorite areas. Every digital guide includes a library of photos for each climb, and all the beta you could want – all written and edited by professionals to provide you with everything you need for a successful send. Put rakkup on your phone today and experience the future of climbing guides!
