Needs upgrading to be excellent 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.

Great app Misssing the option to add to the grade section. For example if I select the French system in the info section it explains what countrys use this system. I would like to add Switzerland to that info page as Switzerland uses the French grading system. It would also be nice to select between climbing and bouldering as a French 7 climbing would be a French 5 bouldering .
