We are all used to the fact that each climbing gym holds different climbing competitions (festivals) for different categories of participants: beginners, amateurs and professionals.
Such climbing events make it possible for the large community of climbers to gather in one place, climb interesting routes from the invited routesetters, and of course, compete with each other. After all, looking at official climbing competitions is cool, but participating in amateur ones is no less interesting and exciting, you need to start somewhere.
But both for the participants and for climbing gyms, the process of organizing such climbing challenges is very important. After all, everything should be at a high level, there should be no queues on the routes, routes should be suitable categories for each group of climbers, and of course the rating calculation format should be simple, clear and transparent.
It is this criterion that 12Climb adheres to when creating software (applications and analytics) for climbing activities.
Organizers can easily create and fill the event with routes, and participants simply mark their climb and the rating is automatically generated in real time online.
Let’s look at an example of what and how it works in the events section of the 12Climb application – climbing competitions management.
The first is the creation of an event. 12Climb helps organizers create an event in the application: they indicate the name, date, temporary sets, categories of participants, etc.
After that, the organizers have administrator rights in the application, which allows you to control and edit information about the participants of the competition, namely: confirm participation after registration, change the category of the participant (beginner, amateur, pro), transfer the participant to one or another temporary group. This is all possible in the Rating section.
Further, the administrator can appoint the event routesetters – only the routesetter can add routes. After that, it remains only to make routes, indicate points for the routes and that’s it. Then it’s up to the participants, who will make their contributions, and you, as the organizer, will only observe the process and enjoy the pastime. You can also add a link to the video from the route climbing and it will be available directly in the application.
What do the participants see, and what opportunities do they have at the event in the 12Climb application?
In the events section there are 3 tabs Live, Future and Past. The participant finds the competitions necessary for him and registers. In this case, you can choose your category, a temporary group for climbing (soon there will be a module for paying for participation in the event). It is important to clarify that participants can make their climb at the time indicated by the organizer (usually this time is group climbing + 30-60 minutes after the end).
After registration, the participant has access to all routes in the Problems section. You can apply all the necessary filters and sortings for convenience. You can mark the passage either with a swipe in the list of routes, or while viewing the route.
Also, for the convenience of finding routes, you can use the QR scanner in the application if the gym has placed QR tags near the routes or use the search by the name of the route.
After marking each climb, all points are added up automatically. And in the Rating section you can see your position at the moment. Also in the rating you can use filters by Sex and Categories of participants.
Event organizers can also see the rating and summary tables for all participants in the 12Climb Analytics section of climbing events management. This allows you to easily and quickly make the final protocols after the competition. If necessary, there is the possibility of additional event settings: hidden route categories, hidden points, TOP N of the best climbs (for example, TOP 10 – will automatically determine and calculate the total score of the 10 best marks on routes).
We recommend using our application for climbing activities, because it simplifies the work of the organizers and provides more opportunities for participants. Paper cards is a routine – use 12Climb.
