well a month ago i did a body analysis. my arms weigh about 6 lbs each and my legs weigh in at 19 lbs each. i'm currently 5'9 and 150. so if i cut off 1 leg and 1 arm, i should be the right weight - but the height is still wrong. maybe though i should cut off 1 leg and 1 ankle (which would get me to 5'6") and only chop off 1/2 of an arm. that should do it. then i can be the world's best climber

if i ever get down to 124, please make sure i'm in a hospital or a psych ward because something has gone terribly wrong! :-D

Andrew, you just confirmed two things for me.

1. I knew climbing would be easier if I were taller, thanks for confirming.
2. I need to lose some lbs. (probably wont work on this one at all since I love myself some cheesecake).

I thought climbing was easier if you are tall?



Climbing is easier if you are tall-- ONLY IF you are shorter than average.

Climbing is easier if you are short-- ONLY IF you are taller than average.

The farther you are away from the median into either direction, the more likely you are to feel the grade inconsistencies.

I just went from 180 to 165 and climbing did get a lot easier. Not a full grade better but close.

This was a fun re-read. This site was a lot more entertaining before everything moved to facebook.
