While some climbers are not concerned with keeping track of their climbs, I personally love having a tick list and being able to look back and be reminded of routes and boulders I would have otherwise forgotten. While these trips down memory lane are definitely nice, keeping a tick list can actually benefit your climbing in substantial ways.
Some free-spirited climber types just don’t care about keeping track of the climbs they’ve on-sighted, flashed, or red pointed. While I love and admire these types, I for one, cannot relate.
