Frustrated with Climbing Ratings
So, as everyone says, it\’s hard to transpose ratings from one climbing area to another. I\’m working on a solution to that, but in the meantime I figured it\’d be good to jot down some relative weightings. There aren\’t too many places I\’ve climbed regularly, but here\’s a simple chart to compare them. If you have climbed at one of these and have additional gyms to add to the comparison, please let me know.

All ratings are relative to the hardest rated gym. EG, if the hardest rated gym (which has rating \”0\”) rates a route a 5.7, a gym rated \”+2\” would likely call that same route a 5.9. Likewise, a 5.10b at the hardest gym would probably be a 5.10c at a gym rated \”+1\”.
