Topic - climbing grades should include time taken to complete climb

BolderLicious - on 11 Jan 2013
If climbing grades included the time it should take to
do the climb in one continous push,with no falls, wouldn't this give people a better idea of the difficulty of the climb.
So the right unconquerable at stanage edge has to be climbed fast because
the average hvs climber would not have the stamina to stand still and chat to his mates below for ten minutes!A time could be given for the crux alone and this would help-technically very hard climbs with double dynos could have very short times for the crux such as 5 seconds!!
