Climb the World series
Always dreamed of climbing Mt Blanc? How about Kilimanjaro, Mt Kenya or even a Himalayan peak like Mera or Island Peak?
The Climb the World Series of Apps and books will take you up the classic route on some of the most famous peaks around the world. These routes are not extreme rock, snow or ice climbing routes, although most will require some knowledge, skill and experience in some of those areas.
Each app in the Climb series has a guidebook section full of information, a suggested itinerary, if needed, to get you to the foot of the climb and a day-by-day guide to the route; general statistics on time taken, amount of ascent and descent shown in a route profile, along with altitude and distance.
The guidebook section also includes text and photos on places of interest, must see views, ideas on where to stay, top tips, what equipment to take, FAQs, picture galleries and videos.
The app uses the GPS on your iPhone to track your position as you go: use the ‘progress’ function to see your own time, distance travelled and height climbed as you make your journey. You can share all these stats on your social networking sites at the end of each day.
