multi pitch points

Post by 512OW » Mon Jul 09, 2007 6:25 pm

I vote that all multi pitch routes should be broken down into individual pitches in the guidebook so that I can get more points on my ticklist.

Thanks.

Aww... poor guy. Your sarcasm burns right through me.

I bet you carry a haul bag to the crag don't you?

Haul bags are great. They fit lunch, beer, and all the other necessities for sending hard 5.8.

I second that. It would sure boast my ego to see me score up. I should be rewarded for being a fat trad cat. As it is I am being punished for not being a skinny sport weasel.

I should get extra points for running pitches together. No ,wouldn't work I would just get docked for being rescued when the rope drag shuts me down again.

Sure-- do you want points for the sends you've belayed, too? I can work out some sort of algorithm based on how long you were on belay, whether the sun was in your eyes, whether you had to put on a down jacket because it was chilly, the angle at which your neck was crooked, etc. ;)

I believe if you check certain folks www.8a.nu card, people commonly take each pitch as its own route.

Speaking of silly ways too boost ones score, apparently you can now log on "repeats" at a discounted point value!

www.8a.nu can really be a great source of a good laugh!

Oh what I forgot to mention is that since apparently www.8a.nu is becoming the Rosetta Stone for climbing, especially grades, you know the part that really matters, I figured taking each pitch as its own grade is internationally accepted.
:shock:

What multiplier should be used for calculating the points value of first ascents?

Do to advances in online databases, advanced code and people with large egos and lots a spare time, that is all taken care for you simply by filling out a score card on www.13b.nu!

8a.nu needs a cute little "Import Spray from RRC" button for those of us who stopped using it once Ray created the online guidebook.

Thanks Yas. I would appreciate if you could work all that out. I'd also like half points for routes I aspire to in the future.

Actually Larry, the later ascents get more points because trad FA's never clean anything. The 2nd and 3rd go in expecting a route, then have to garden their way to the top.

I suggested FA points long ago....
