I was talking with my friend Ben Hutt today about climbing grades. Ben has a new friend who is eager to go climbing outside. Ben was telling me about a conversation with him, and said:
And I quote, "Quincy and the gunks are harder than most places "for the grade"
Your thoughts? I mean... they kind of are?
But at the same time, Cathedral / Whitehorse is pretty close, I think I agree 50%. Because of the relative nature of climbing grades, there is no absolute, so you always need a comparison.
