Calculate your Climbing Number!

In physical activities, the Climbing Number is a progressive score that is based on the number of days that you've climbed that number of feet (in imperial mode) or metres (in metric). It is calculated in the same way as the distance-based Eddington Number, and I have included it in my suite of Strava tools - see My Strava Climbing Number to calculate your own.
