Remember this is just for fun... I'm not going to get too hung up on details of graphing your precise history. If you get "credit" for a trad climb that you TR'd... whatever.

Some notes for those of you that care about the details:
- a boulder counts as 1 pitch
- boulder ratings are rounded up, i.e. V5-6 becomes V6
- +/- are dropped for all boulders and routes <= 5.9
- all the rock ratings are "rounded" as you would expect (5.10a becomes 5.10-, 5.10d becomes 5.10+)
- for routes designated "sport/TR" for example, sport takes precedence, then trad, and finally TR, but only if neither of the other two are specified (each route is only counted once). Routes with no designation are skipped (not sure if there are any)
- similar logic for routes designated "Alpine/Ice". Precedence is: Alpine, Snow, Ice, Mixed, Boulder, Rock. Routes are only counted once.
- Hover over the pie wedges and you'll find what each piece stands for. I'm omitting a legend on purpose.

Yes, you keep trying to resurrect an off-topic discussion that the admin has clearly and politely asked to be moved to a separate thread.

Nick, thanks for the quick reply. I didn't think to check for mouseovers. Thanks for putting the work in to make these plots.

Cams are over rated.

UGH! Currently underway on my navy boat and we're still running IE Version- OAS( old as shit), and of course super low bandwidth so nothing loads for me on the new feature page. Sooo excited to pull back in and check it out on a non-dinosaur system. Ive been extremely meticuous in ticking every climb I have accomplished since moving out to California. Including repeats. I had been secretly hoping something like this would come along one day, maybe I shouldn't have been so secretive. Glad to see MP. com continuing to lean forward into the future with great upgrades. Especially following up on User suggestions. Big kudos!

Crack Work.

I really like the Ticks feature and use it mostly as a personal log. Thanks for all the work on this guys.

One suggestion I have is to include the location information for each route in the Export list.

Really nice job, Nick. Thanks a lot.

I can't imagine why people want to hide their ticks from the public route pages. When researching routes, I like reading the list of who has climbed a particular route along with all of the short tick comments.

Awesome. But while we are at it is there any way to sort the routes by areas? I would love to see charts of my progress at different areas. Also it would be awesome if you could click on different parts of the charts and see a list of those ticks.

working through the crux

I was wondering if there was any way you could list routes that we've repeated and new routes separately. That probably didn't make sense so here's an example. say I've climbed one route ever but I've climbed it 7 times. Is there a way if I ticked it 7 times to show two different numbers, one number being the number of different routes I've done (1) and the other number being the total number of routes I've climbed (7)

There is most likely no easy answer to this but, one small prob I have with this system is that if you dont top out a multipitch route, there is no way to log the pitches that you have done. For example my list shows I have climbed 5.12 and *sigh*, I have not.


It is definitely a semantic debate, but ever since I started climbing, I always defined a tick as a route I completed on lead, or swinging leads without falls. This means for me on a multi pitch route you have to go all the way. When it is multi pitch season, I often go months without ticking things because I don't meet these criteria.

I know that everyone defines a tick differently and uses the tick feature differently, however, I always thought that my definition was something that climbers agreed on.

I am curious about others thoughts on the definition of a "tick."

EDIT: Even though I don't use the tick feature, I might be more interested in using it if there were a couple of other categories for logging routes.
1. Routes you have been on, but are works in progress (Adam's situation, or a route you are projecting).
2. A place to log repeats of routes you have already done (would be nice for tracking training sessions at the crag)
Thoughts?

Think about Genesis in Eldo. Most people only do the 11a first pitch and skip the 12d second pitch. The 11a is classic and worthy of a tick!

I agree with your definition of what a "tick" is. Personally I do use the tick feature, but I just use it to document the climbs I do in any style (not necessarily a true tick). I then use the comments to add what style I climbed it in (onsight, redpoint, hangdog, TR, whatever). Also, if I didn't top out on a multipitch, I'll add the number of pitches I did climb there as well. Personally I don't care if other people see my ticks or not (i'm not a good enough climber to spray anyway), but I do think that it would be nice to be able to hide them if you wanted to.

I don't use RC.com's "record ascent" feature because of their horrible route database (along with the fact that I don't spend much time on there anymore), but I do think that it is vastly superior to MP's tick feature. I love that when you record an ascent on RC, you have a dropdown to record the style you climbed it in, it has you rate the climb for difficulty, safety, and quality right there, and still allows for notes. I also like that you can read all of the ascent notes on a route to get beta if you are looking for it.

If MP would implement something like RC's record ascent feature instead of their tick feature I would absolutely love it.

It might be a nice feature to be able to select whether your tick was an onsight, flash, redpoint, toprope, or hangdog. Not only would this help you keep track of your climbing feats, but would also help others get a better idea of your true abilities when searching for partners.

EDIT: kennoyce beat me to it, but that's exactly what I'm talking about. Personally I only add ticks to route that I've climbed on lead without falling, but I know some people consider a tick any route that they've been on, whether they've sent it or not.

Love the new tick breakdown. One suggestion or request. With the graphs/charts, would it be possible to make it so that when you hover over a section of it, clicking on it would sent you to a list of what climbs are made up that section of the graph. For example if I click on the 5.9 bar of the ratings bar graph, it would show the list of 5.9 climb ticks that make up that bar. Or if I clicked on the trad section of my pie chart, it would only bring up climbs that were categorized as trad climbs. Thanks in advance for considering it.

Okay, now you can click on any of the columns and see which routes make up the data. For example, see which 5.9 routes are in that column, or which routes you did last October. It works for all four column charts (but not the two pie charts).

Here's my page, but it will work for all of you (that have ticks).

Moving through the crux lock - now that's micro beta for you, that is.

Hey Nick, any recourse for those of us who have always used the star ratings as our 'ticks'?

It'd be sweet to see similar charts/tables based on star ratings, if that wouldn't be a headache to pull off...

The rating itself (how many stars) would be irrelevant. Just a simple yes/no. If we rated it at all, we ticked that climb.

All I have to say is... Fuck Ya!

I have been clicking those bars expecting this to happen for months knowing full well that it wouldn't work.

Any chance that the pie charts will work in the future?

Racking too much gear, as usual.

Very nice.

Slight bug: Clicking on the "+" routes in the "Rock Routes by Grade" chart displays all of the ticks for all grades. (At least on my charts: 5.10+ and 5.11+—I can't climb 5.12+ so I can't tell you about that.)
