Has anyone used Strava to log their climbing?

Does it work (well)?
Thanks in advance

HI Justin

I have not used Strava for climbing because, as far as i'm aware it does not track your altitude. Strava works for running or cycling where you are travelling a distance.

I use my Suunto watch for indoor and outdoor climbing. it tracks altitude very well and tells me when my heart needs a break;-)

See screenshots of my Movescount below - one was a climb up lions head and the other was a session at CityROCK CPT - the gaps are where I paused it for a water break.

You can sync your Suunto to Strava as well.

Hope this helps
