No doubt your appetites for Fiend's hotly anticipated shake up of the grading system will have been whetted to the point of salivation by previous indications of it's arrival: http://www.ukclimbing.com/caff/forums/t.php?t=17215&v=1 and http://www.ukclimbing.com/caff/forums/t.php?t=17075&v=1 .

Fear not, the time is soon. After much deliberation, I have set 9:00 am on Saturday 1st June as the time that the revolution will commence. You will be advised to attend the internet-exclusive unveiling of this new grading concept to fully appreciate how it will enhance your climbing lifestyle.

It is coming...

Don't worry, even if you miss the opening ceremony, the new grading system will be part of everyday guidebook usage very shortly.

In reply to Fiend: But it's a long bank holiday weekend - every responsible climber should be away climbing!

In reply to Robin: You will need a 4 day holiday to recover from the shock of how innovative. Besides, you may even be able to put it into action over the weekend!!

In reply to Woker: Most assuredly not!!

In reply to Simon Andrews: Whatever this "world cup" thing is (some culinary event?), it will be no contest.

Can you not release it this afternoon so we all know what grade we are climbing this weekend and we can push a new grade without actually pushing a new grade and we can compare grades on Wednesday and.... and... this one time at band camp.....
