    This app wants to know your phone number to translate climbing grades.

    Full screen advertising on the latest version which you have to close before you can use the app. Either switch to less intrusive ads or offer a paid version without ads. App removed for good....

    Good but some conversions make little or no sense, in particular the conversion of the brit adj. scale into any technical scale - they provide different, loosely related information: one informs on safety, all others on difficulty.

    Very useful for quick, rough comparisons. I use it when instructing, to help explain different systems used in indoor walls. Like any other tool it's down to the user to interpret it intelligently. However, it needs lists of countries using a particular common grading system. For example, what grades are used in Canada? Other instructors I have shown it to thought it was a great concept.
