I wanted an easy way to track how often I climb, so I printed out a single-page calendar that shows the entire year on it and stuck it to the wall next to my computer. (This is the 2016 calendar I printed, and here’s a 2017 version. I like these versions too: 2016 and 2017.)
I use circles to mark the bouldering days and squares to mark the roped climbing days. I’ve only been doing this for a couple of weeks (starting on November 7), but I really like it so far.
You could get more fancy by using different colors, like one color for gym climbing and one color for outdoor climbing, for example. I don’t climb indoors, so I’ve just stuck with the squares and circles.
Anyway, I think it’s a useful way to see at a glance how much climbing I’m doing. It’ll also be interesting to see just how often I manage to get outside once the depths of winter hit. I live in northern Utah, and while we definitely get snow and frigid temperatures, some areas are climbable even mid-winter during the warmer spells.
