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.
I added 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 climbing routes
- 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 JavaSE 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.
- 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.
- 2004/12/28: After a long, long time the new version 2.1 has been released.
The implementation uses the new Java 5.0 and was internally improved. The XML
validation is now based on the XSD schema and the HTML export is valid XHTML
1.0. The menu can be used with shortcuts now.
The most easy way to install is to use Java WebStart (needs to be installed
allready). Simply click here.
If you can't use Java WebStart you can download the latest version here (needs at
least JavaSE version 5.0 or 1.5.0):
You can also download the old version named jClimber's Diary here (same requirements):
