Using the Rockfax App with your UKC Logbook


The Rockfax App includes full integration with the UKClimbing Logbook system. This means that you can keep a full logbook of every route you climb and access that logbook directly from your phone.

Adding an ascent to your UKC Logbook from the Rockfax App

Once you have linked your UKC profile to the Rockfax App you shouldn’t ever need to do that again. Now you can get on with the business of adding your ascents at the crag as you climb them, or retrospectively.

Frequent Questions

Q1: Do I need to pay anything to use the app with my UKC Logbook?
No, everything works with the free app with no in-app purchases being required.

Q2: Do I need a UKC Profile to have a logbook?
No, although you will only be able to store a logbook for routes on Rockfax crags that you have purchased.

Q3: Can I log ascents at the crag?
Yes, although you do need a 3G/4G signal to access the UKC Logbook database and upload your ticked ascents. If you tick an ascent and it fails to upload, it is stored and then uploaded next time you get a signal.

Q4: Can I delete logged ascents from the app?
Yes. Search for the route, tap the square green tick icon, find the ascent on the next page and tap on that. Then tap ‘Edit’ and scroll down to the base of the next screen to get the ‘Delete this Ascent’ button. This sometimes takes a while to stop appearing on your online UKC logbook but is removed from the app version immediately.

Q5: What if my route isn’t listed on the UKC tab?
In this case you will need to first go to UKClimbing.com and add the route
