theCrag Gym Solution

theCrag Gym Solution


I am Andreas Knabl, boss of the climbing center Imst,
I am route setter, national trainer and I use theCrag for the maintenance of the routes,
for the optimal use of space and simply for the people to communicate with each other
and so that the training plans suit what they already climbed. The big advantages of theCrag are simply that I can gather all routes in the system,
I know exactly which routes were built at what time, which route setters were here,
who I could call again to bolt new routes. I see how many routes have been used, it shows me exactly what
the frequency of the routes was and that is just perfect for the hall. Later the climber himself can just tick off the routes,
can say he climbed this and that and that way he can keep a journal. He can exactly see his progress, what he did
and can go back to see what he climbed, where he is right now and can basically
control his training a little bit. I am also the trainer of the Alpenverein climbing team Imst
and theCrag offers me as a trainer advanced options to look at the climbers, what they accomplished
in the last months, weeks and days. Whether they actually performed the training
plans that I wrote for them on the wall. That means they can capture all their routes,
ascends, boulders, everything they did and I as their trainer can see what they did
and if they followed the training plan that I gave them. At the same time I can compare them, that means at a glance
I can see the performance curve of all three or four which is ideal and I get a summary of the whole thing quite fast. The whole theCrag is a real motivation boost
especially for my climbers of the climbing team Imst now they have their routes on hand,
they see what they climbed and also how difficult the top of the pyramid shows exactly 8a, 8b, 8c
and for the kids that is something that they can grasp and that is really cool and of course their peers also see that
and that motivates the team which is really awesome. Of course theCrag also offers a lot more,
one feature for example is that I can host little competitions, I don’t need to do competitions for professionals
but for the climbers in the hall. We are now doing a winter challenge which means
that the people fill in their routes and those who collect the most points will be the winners.
