o ensure that the Scorecard is not missused all holders will have their personal ID and password. We will not allow climbers with faked names to take part in the ranking, however you can choose to be a log-book member = No Score & No ranking!

We would also like to explain that we do think that climbing is foremost about adrenalin, scenery and nice people. Sometimes you can add grades and points and it gets even more exiting, but don't lose your perspective. Take care!
