Everyone who climbs will probably be familiar with the "tradition" of writing down
all the climbing routes ever made in something like a diary. ClimbLog is an application
made for this purpose.
It also contains some features that can't be found in a normal paper-diary.
Here are some of them:
hierarchal organization of the entries into climbing areas, rock groups, rocks and
fast navigation and search capabilities via the tree-structure
optional commentary for each entry
export to a HTML file for external viewing, printing and editing
statistics (number of climbed rocks, routes, ...)
This application is written in 100% pure
Java. So it should run on any operating system with a Java SE Runtime Environment.
You need at least the version 5.0 to run it.
The data of this app is stored in a XML-file, so it's easy to use process it
with other applications.
ClimbLog also supports internationalization. At the moment there are english,
german and italian translations available.
2013/12/21: The ClimbLog website has been updated to match the look & feel of the
other project websites at saring.de. It's now based on
HTML 5 and Bootstrap instead of XHTML 1.0
2013/12/21: The Java WebStart installation option has been removed. Due to security reasons
Java WebStart applications now require signed certificates, this behavior was introduced with
Java 7 Update 40 (7u40). The certificates are quite expensive and can't be handled by open
source and non-commercial projects.
So you need to download and install the binary archives instead.
2006/05/28: ClimbLog 3.0 is available.
The biggest change is the new application name, it's much more comfortable then
jClimber's Diary. This is also a new (very simple) ClimbLog website at a
Here's a list of the major changes in 3.0: Each route now contains multiple
(at least 1) route climbs, so you can store multiple climbs of routes. All
dialogs have been rewritten with improved layout and they are now resizable.
ClimbLog now uses the native Look&Feel on Windows systems. The data is stored in
a new XML format, the old data will be imported automatically.
Besides that there are many bugfixes and refactorings.
2005/08/23: Version 2.2 is available.
This version switches to the UTF-8 encoding for the XML file, which removes
problems for some locales. There were also minor GUI and HTML export updates.
Latest Version (needs at least JavaSE version 5.0 or 1.5.0):
The installation is described in the contained README.txt file.
