In this work we address the question how mobile technology can be used for collaborative boulder training. More specifically, we present a mobile augmented reality application to support various parts of boulder training. The proposed approach also incorporates sharing and other social features. Thus our solution supports collaborative training by providing an intuitive way to create, share and define goals and challenges together with friends. We present of a user study with climbers that used the application in a climbing gym.
