Ok, I may be tagging myself as a noob here, but here's my question (still unanswered after an hour of google, and searching MP). I want to start keeping a log of lead climbs I do, with info on grade, conditions, gear, partners, etc. But, I'm too lazy to build (and maintain), any kind of spreadsheet, or make a log out of a blank notebook. I want some kind of book that just has labeled blanks to fill in, that I can take in my car and fill out at the end of a trip. My dad has a sweet one that he got back in the day in Cali, but I can't seem to find a similar one now, except for the Nomad one (which is way to detailed and wordy for my purposes). Any suggestions?

Edit: I forgot to mention that this log-keeping will be done partly for my own entertainment, and partly with the intention of working on an AMGA certification at some point. Not really sure what their requirements for resume format are, but keep that in mind when replying...

Thats an awesome idea! I've actually been trying to make a spread sheet of ski touring ascents and descents but have been wondering if there are any already mad. Hope someone post one on here. Owen Darrow

Have you considered contacting AMGA directly and asking them what their requirements are?

I can appreciate people who want to keep a journal/log, I'm just not that dedicated. Hell, I still have scuba dives in my dive computer that I never got around to logging.

But in the interest of helping, here is the second link that Google showed me on my first search of "rock climbing journal": nomadjournals.com/climbing.cfm... . Looks to be a fairly detailed and nicely constructed journal. HTH

Just found this on rockclimbing.com. This guy has made a log book into a pdf file. Here... rockclimbing.com/cgi-bin/forum... Owen Darrow

Sorry, I just realized you mentioned the Nomad in your original post. Brian Hudson

You might reconsider the spreadsheet idea. I find it far less cumbersome and time-consuming to keep my notes in a spreadsheet than to laboriously write them down in a book. This has the added benefit that my notes are actually readable, which is something the AMGA might be looking for when the time comes.

Here's a screenshot of the spreadsheet template I use:

So when is mountain project going to simplify this for us by making a button you can click on that will generate a list of all climbs you have starred including comments and ticks of each? Perhaps "dirtbag deals" is more of what people are after? Forestvonsinkafinger
