The site allows users to contribute, add and update the guides and chat with other climbers around the country.

It came top of 21 nominated projects from 278 eligible entries.

Luke was joined on stage by senior lecturers Colin Chambers, Lesley Drumm and David De-Leuw to accept the award.

Another Interactive Multimedia graduate, Sam Hassan, was also nominated in the Interactive Installations and Interactive TV category for his system, which allows viewers to express their opinions on the television programme they are watching.

Sam has also been nominated for the British Interactive Multimedia Awards which will be held on Thursday Nov 29.
