Your Page Vertical Feet Climbed

Since every route has a spot to enter the height in feet, can MP create a metric under "Your Page" that tallies vertical feet annually and lifetime, such as it does pitches and types of routes climbed?

I think this has been brought up before, and one of the main issues mentioned was how unreliable/inconsistent route heights are; many routes don't have a height listed at all.

That being said, I still think it would be a neat metric, especially if you could break it down further by climb type ( e.g., differentiating between 1000' bouldering and leading would be useful).

Even if it is not complete due to some routes not having a height listed, it would still be neat.

You can do it in excel when you export your ticks. Take a little extra legwork if you also want it to include multiple laps on a single pitch climbs.

Climb a few more years and you’ll discover that tracking vertical is irrelevant.

I once tracked how many cups of tea I drank at work over a three month span. A lot of what I do is irrelevant.

I also think this could be kinda cool.
But also I did a quick version by summing the lengths on the CVS export, which was simple, and I've apparently traveled just over  vertical(ish) 10 miles with my climbing!

If you can figure out the basics of Pivot tables you can use this Excel sheet to run a bunch of summations. Like feet climbed per grade, etc.

So I have never noticed the excel export feature. That solves it! Thanks everyone!
