(In terms of the most logged climbs)

It's not about size, it's the quality that counts.

The race to 10,000 is on!

Interesting.

For the 214 people who have Amphitheatre Buttress on their wish list; don't bother, it's pants...

Definitely helps to be near grit. An easy place to go and tick 50 routes in an evening.

In reply to Quarryboy: its inversely proportional to the most prolific ukc posts stats. Lets not talk about it, ley=ts do it.

Proof? Plenty of prolific posters have huge tick lists. I'm with Pylon King on the pants issue since we are on the subject of daft assertions.

People do seem to measure two differing things with their logbooks though.

I have only every logged climbs once. The first time I climb them. I possibly re-date them with a note when I improve the style. Some however appear to log a route every time they ascend it.

For example Hammy has logged 'A Route' at Pex Hill 27 times.

I have always thought that distinguishing between 'climbs logged' and 'different climbs logged' would be a useful function.

Agreed. There's your logbook of climbs done, and then there is a training record. If a filter could be applied to only show completed climbs it would help as well. It would make sense of the boulder problems logged as worked & did not finish too, but also allow people to record the day they started up a multi-pitch route but bailed due to bad weather.

> 'A Route' is the usual descent route at Pex. If you logged everything you solo'd at your local evening crags you would have a fantastic number of 'climbs'.

Interesting that a quarter of all gritstone climbs logged are at stanage, but no non-grit crag has more than one or two percent of non-gritstone climbs logged.

eh?!?

I think he's trying to say a lot of grit stone climbing happens just at stanage where as climbing on other rock types much more dispersed across a wide range of crags.

Thanks, my brain is on a go slow (more than usual) today ;)

In reply to Lord_ash2000:

The fact that Stanage has ahuge no. of routes is significant too.
I presume that South Pembroke isn't counted as one crag for example.
Red Rover - on 07 Aug 2014
In reply to DubyaJamesDubya:

Well stanage is split into four crags with 25 percent of all grit ticks betweem them. There's more routes there than any other crag but all the majority of the other grit crags have loads of routes as well, even some of the minor crags still have well over 100, so you'd expect more spread, I think a lot of people just go to stanage. Unless there's a lot of climbers out there who go to lots of different crags but call in at Stanage for an evenings soloing which would lead to a lot of ticks. Not that it really matters, I like how you can find a moorland crag with 100 clean routes and have it to yourself.

That's how I do it as well.

Yes it is.

I'm thrilled at the prospect of the race for a million. At present it seems to be between grit (not quarried) and limestone, but if the granites could agree to recognise no differences they could make a late challenge!

I only log things once, and then only solos or leads. The exception being southern sandstone top roped ascents. I don't log routes I've repeated, seconded or failed on. I'd be much higher than number 13 if I did that!
deacondeacon - on 07 Aug 2014
In reply to DerwentDiluted:

Yep same here. Bouldering, solos or leads except on southern sandstone. I did put one top rope on a few weeks ago but I wouldn't normally, it was just a special route and I'll lead it soon.

For me the logbooks are the best bit about UKC and I actually look forward to coming home from climbing and filling it in, and reading others comments on the routes.
Yes I am that sad.

In reply to deacondeacon: Ditto. My Girlfriend gets as annoyed with me staring endlessly at my log book as she does with me actually going out climbing.

In reply to Red Rover:

Good spot. Its part of why I argue UKC includes disproportionate numbers of inexperienced climbers and why Stanage easy VS grades are the most distorted of any heavily voted grades. My log is combined with Moff (with comments on our experience) and part published on 'Offwidth'
