Parlier Creates GHSP Web App

Monday, November 3, 2014 - 11:20am

Nov. 3, 2014. MA student Aaron Parlier has created a mobile application for an online rock climbing guidebook of routes in Virginia's Grayson Highlands State Park. Parlier started the project as a climbing enthusiast who discovered that very little information was available about climbing routes in the Blue Ridge of southwestern Virginia. In addition to maps and descriptions about the routes found in printed guides, the mobile guidebook provides important GPS location information that helps climbers navigate their way to climbing areas in the park. The guidebook app is hosted on Rakkup, which was created by West Coast climbers but had not been used on the East Coast before Parlier created the Grayson Highlands guide. Climbers and others interested in Parlier's work can search for the Rakkup app at Google Play and Apple's iTunes store.
