      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

GODZILLA: WHY IM HARD

Which begs the question: What does it mean to be a solid 5.11 climber? If'n ya don't can't won't do a certain 5.11, ya ain't a "all-around 5.11 climber"?


Well it does beg the question somewhat. What I would say is that those 5.11s one can't/won't climb would be "few."

PP: The term "few" places some conditional limits on a given context, regardless of one's peripatetic reasoning....

If I know a "few" climbers, this would limit that sample pool to perhaps 5 in size. Now if a few of those climb X, Y, or Z, "few" would still denote a number which the term refers to:

 

"Amounting to or consisting of a small number: one of my few bad habits.

Being more than one but indefinitely small in number: bowled a few strings." (per

 

So given this sordid state of affairs, ALL of my 5.13 climber buds could be "all-around 5.11 climbers", since the sample pool is but a "few"....

 

Ummmm....so there.
[Wink]

Well it is nice if they all are. That still doesn't change my argument anymore than the probability of having "heads" come up the next time you flip a coin changes after it comes up heads 10 times in a row just before the flip in question.

 

But I do question your use of the dictionary. It is not the word "few" that enables you to not be inconsistent by now claiming that ALL your 5.13 friends are solid all-around 5.11 leaders. But your previous use of the word "least".

Here it is: at least a few of the 5.13 climbers I know are quite good on trad, with 5.12 gear on-sight abilities.

 

Please less time in the gym and more in school!

 

By the way any volunteers to tow me up Mary's Tears/Crucifx?

Alright Sexy you had me sweating there. I had to back and see jus twhat I wrote! It was "most sportos who climb 5.13" Ambiguous to be sure but ambiguity saved me. To be clearer: I would add the word "routes" right after 5.13!

 

Now I wish you never came back! [Eek!]

 

Cheers [big Drink]
