Nodes with natural=rock and sport=climbing should have a icon indicating a climbing facility.

Moreover, nodes with climbing=route_bottom and sport=climbing should render the same icon.

(See [] and [])

One needs to add the following to inc/

  <Filter>[sport]='climbing' and ([natural]='rock' or [climbing]='route_bottom')</Filter>
  <PointSymbolizer file="&symbols;/climbing.png" type="png" width="16" height="16" />

The select statement for nodes at the bottom of the file has to be altered as follows:

  • Add 'rock' to
"natural" in ('peak','spring','tree')
  • Add
or climbing='route_bottom' needs a new entry:

node,way   climbing     text         polygon

(I'm not sure about the "polygon" flag.)

The proposed icon is adapted from [] which is public domain (see [])

I support this request for rendering sport=climbing in the standard map, as it is of interest and there are not so many useful alternative information sources. Some points:

  • climbing is a quite common sport (e.g. in Germany), so not only a hand full of people is interested in that information
  • a big part of climbing sites are where not many map features are, i.e. they are not in city centers, air ports etc. so they don't pose a threat of "overloaded" maps
  • many climbing sites are not easy to find, e.g. usually no signs guide to them and they are hard to identify in satellite images, so users have a desperate need to find them in a map (compare that to e.g. tennis fields)
  • usual walking maps etc. don't contain icons for climbing sites
  • climbing guide books usually don't contain detailed maps with approach paths, as those books cover too many areas
