climbing=* , climbing:*=*, sport=climbing

A set of tags to describe climbing routes and crags.

This was originally proposed by Steve Hill in 2008-04-18 and is currently in use.

TODO - cleanup and check/remove duplication with sport=climbing.

Statistics

This proposal is in active use - see https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=climbing#keys

pangoSE estimate that, as of September 2018, at least 14000 real world climbing sites exist (estimated from sport=climbing and leisure=climbing) and out of these 10-20% are mapped more detailed with the keys in this proposal.

Climbing Routes

Climbing routes can be mapped with a single node marking the bottom of the route, tagged as climbing=route_bottom, or two nodes tagged with climbing=route_bottom and climbing=route_top connected by a way tagged as climbing=route.

Since climbing routes are generally quite vertical, the start and end nodes may be almost on top of each other. The rationale behind allowing two nodes and a connecting way, even though they may be extremely close on the map, is to allow a path connecting to the bottom of the route to be differentiated from a path connecting to the top. As such, if there is no top-access to the route, only a single node, marking the start, is probably preferable - see discussion.

If the climbing route is more or less horizontal or doesn't have a clear top/bottom it may be mapped only with a way or node climbing=roue

climbing:summit_log=* yes nodovía The climbing feature has a summit log (summit register, de:Gipfelbuch), see sport=climbing.

Crags

All of the routes within a crag can be grouped into a relation and must be tagged with climbing=crag.

Boulders

Boulders are small rocks that have "problems" instead of routes. Sometimes they can be climbed with less protection than other areas to practice moves.
