      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!

I think shorter rock climbers have an edge?

rumr is correct about what th average joe should be able to climb without the above listed limiations.

The big guys always seemed good right off the bat at waterfall ice but now with leashes being considered taboo, that game is going to the short man to.

At just below 6'...at 204, I was pulling .9's...at 165, I was pulling hard .11's moving into .12's

(strength-to-weight-ratio)

 

At my current weight, I'd need the strength to pull the rock over on top of me

This is all crap! If you know how to climb then height does not matter at all!!! I am 5'8" and I guarantee that I can find a way to make the same reach that someone who is 6'0" can reach. Seriously, how often do you have to be 100% extended when you climb? And if you answered this by saying that you are 100% extended a lot then you need to learn some technique.

 

silly talk, man, just silly talk.

 

silly talk.

But weight has more to do with it than just muscle. How many people do you know that weigh 220+ that crank hard?

Not many, but I think John Long is in that range...

I'm 6'3; my girlfriend is 5'3. We both climb at basically the same grade for sport, trad, bouldering, and gym climbing. If height was a major determination of climbing ability, wouldn't the top climbers all be 7-8 feet tall??

No, they'd be basketball players.

According to one site I found, he weighs about 12 stones. That translates to 168 pounds. I wouldn't consider him a heavy until he hits the 15 stone region (~210 pounds).

JL's at least as big as me...guessing 210-220(or was, haven't seen him in a couple of years)...was cruising .11's like it was that time of day

 

Though, I'm sure what his 210-220 is made of is much different than mine. Sure, I could still pull .11's...if you put a 4 in front of the decimal

Marty on this site almost weighs 200 pounds and has sent multiple 14's.

 

I almost weigh 200 pounds and haven't fallen off 5.11's for a long time.

 

Obviously, not all 200 pounds are created equal, but if you know how to climb (here's a hint, use your feet retards!) at all, there will be many greater limiters to your performance than body size.

 

This thread is feckin ghey!
