Ticks are routes you've climbed. Go to any route in the database and you'll see there is a link to add the route as a tick. I personally don't use them because it would immediately show everyone how weak I really am.

Also, ugly chalk marks on critical holds usually with a boulder problem; and also the nasty little harbingers of spring. The "the ticks are out" threads will be starting in a few weeks. Mike Lane

luckily in my case the pun wasn't realized, literall or figuratively. kevin, if you want to see a tick, SSV is the place to go. Every single time we have climbed there between mid february and early june, we have had at least 1 of the little bugger on us. it's like the tick capital of colorado. slim
