It's a great idea!

That source sems like it's okay for Spain? (never climbed there) Looks like it's missing a lot of other popular european climbing spots though.

I emailed mountainproject a while ago and asked if they could create an api but never heard back. I know they also do bike trails which would be another good source to have. Maybe it's time to bug them again :)

For European climbing maybe it's worth looking for or asking 8a.nu for an api?

I've looked around for a mountain project api, and I would assume that they aren't going to make one. Many people have asked for it on their forums and to my knowledge, none have received any feedback. I have found another website that does have a fairly extensive database, but its only for climbing. http://www.thecrag.com/ It has an api but its in beta. Here's the api site: http://www.thecrag.com/article/API

That looks like a really interesting source. I've never hear of them before but it looks like they have pretty good data on the climbing spots I checked. I'll look into getting an api key.

Any luck on getting an api key?

Sorry for the delay. I was looking into getting us access to another api which might still work out. I'll email theCraig today though.

Good news! I heard back from theCrag and they even offered to help out with the development. I sent them the link to this post so we can discuss the technical details over here.
