The Smith Rock map is a 24”x36” very detailed fold-out trail map printed on waterproof tear-proof paper. This unique and detailed map shows:
• The difficulty level of trails to climbing walls and common climb walk-offs;
• Locations of exposure and the potential severity of injury should a fall occur;
• Labeled (from-the-ground) orientation photos to assist with navigation at points of confusion;
• Comprehensive route statistics for each wall showing the total number of climbs, distribution of sport/traditional/top rope, distribution of route grade, and number of aid and multi-pitch climbs at a wall.
This map not only helps climbers get to their destination faster it can be used to help plan a climbing day. Imagine sitting in your tent, map folded out before you and, at a glance:
• determining a location that has several nearby walls with the type of climbs you want. Or,
• planning a multi-pitch climb by previewing the approach and walk-off distance and difficulty, as well as levels of exposure.
These maps also complement area guidebooks and Mountain Project. For example, if Mountain Project uses one name for a wall and local guidebooks use another, both names are listed. In addition, route data for a wall has been compiled from all currently available sources. If Mountain Project lists 4 climbs at a wall and the guidebooks have an additional 5 climbs, Climb-On Maps shows there are 9 different climbs on that wall. It is the most comprehensive route statistics available.
ABOUT CLIMB-ON MAPS
Climb-On Maps was started by husband-wife team Stefani Dawn and Rick Momsen. Over 1 year ago they left their jobs and began full-time mapping of multiple climbing areas (Smith Rock, Red Rock Canyon, Joshua Tree). To date, Rick and Stef have walked upwards of 1300 miles, some of which was quite dangerous, to collect the data for these maps. Data was collected using professional GNSS enabled GPS units.
Rick is the “mapping expert.” With nearly 20 years in the mapping industry as a Geographic Information Specialist (GIS). Rick is responsible for translating the GPS and terrain data into an attractive, visually intuitive, and usable map.
Stefani is the “Jack-of-all-trades” for the company, managing the business side, the website, social media, as well as labeling photos, and creating route statistics summaries for the map.
Rick and Stef have each been climbing for around 10 years. The impetus for Climb-On Maps was the ongoing frustration of wasted time looking for climbs while on limited vacation time, and then being side-swiped by a walk-off that was more strenuous and terrifying than the 800’ climb they just completed. Because climbing is their passion (and they really dig being together), they made the leap to start Climb-On Maps.
More maps are in the queue for release this fall including Red Rock Canyon, NV and Joshua Tree, CA.
