OSM for Rock Climbers

I’m an avid rock climber and open source software developer. In early 2017 I launched the OpenBeta Initiative, an open source map sharing app for rock climbers. The app will make it easier for climbers to submit and tag climbing-related natural features and link with external sources (similar to wikidata). The data is pushed to OSM and is also accessible from OpenBeta REST API.
