Logging ascents - new interface

As a supporter you are granted early access to selected new features on theCrag. See here for more information. The new ticking interface is currently available to supporters only for beta testing. This help article describes what it does and what it does not do yet. Please report all suggestions and issues in the Release Forum.

With iteration 4 of the new ticking interface we fix several issues and add multi-pitch logging to the interface - see below for details.

Accessing the new interfaceVoltar a conteúdo

The new interface is currently only available from area pages by clicking on the menu right of the route name and selecting “New Ticking”.

New Ascent Logging UI

General functionalityVoltar a conteúdo

The new ticking interface allows you to log ascents of any route registered on theCrag.The interface presents you with similar fields as the standard log ascent interface but with the following improvements:

New Ascent Logging UI

  • The date fetches the current local date from your client
  • The “Who with” logic is improved and remembers fellow users and non-users during the same session (and for the next)
  • Tick types are presented for easier selection (see also “Functions not yet available”)
  • The route quality can be selected from the list of icons
  • The “Advanced Fields” section allows for private ascent comments
  • You can now enter the number of attempts per session
  • You can now add tags to your ascent which allows the recording of eg the use of kneepads or other parameters
  • You can now override the route name.
  • You can override the grade - if you climed the route in a unusual way/variation.
  • You can provide a difficulty feedback - if you think that the grade of the route is to hard/easy.
  • You can now override the route gear style, meaning you can for example free climb (eg trad) an aid route (ascent gear style).
  • The interface loops you through all routes selected for ticking.
  • Once you are done ticking, the system presents you with a summary of your ascenst with some basic statistical information.

Logging multi-pitch ascentsVoltar a conteúdo

To log individual pitches, check the "Log pitch fields" checkbox. The window expands to show a summary of all pitches.

New Ascent Logging UI

  • Use the slide to select a subset of pitches in case you haven't climbed all and click on the respective Pitch to enter details.
  • You may now change the gear style per pitch (eg if you aided a sports pitch) and select the corresponding tick type.
  • The Lead by field allows you to select yourself or the partners from the "With" field.

Future plansVoltar a conteúdo

Before releasing the interface to the general public theCrag intends to add the following functionality:
  • Improved logic and clean up of tick types per gear style
  • Improved matching of gear styles, ascent gear styles and tick type matching (eg top roping a boulder)
