It would be helpful to know the categories RP2 and RP3 actually mean to add some context to their achievements. There doesn't seem to be any information on the ISFC results page either.

I was wondering the same, little bit of info on this blog:
https://wendyong.org/category/paraclimbing/

Bit more here...
https://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=6806

and here...
http://worldclimbing2016.com/en/news/206-d2-the-paraclimbing-qualifications

It would seem, I'm guessing and generalising a bit here...
B = Visually impaired 1-3, 1 being the highest.
RP2/3 = restricted movement (unsure of the number bit)
AU = Arm amputee (unsure of the number bit)
AL = Leg amputee (unsure of the number bit)

The last link mentions grades of 6c-7a, which is is pretty damn hard if you have no impairment!

hi RP 2 and 3 are the level of disablity if i am correct. I would be RP and i am neurlogical. Brain injury and stuff like that. Same for the no. on AU and AL it would be level of amputee and movement. So some of the team have a hand missing, some below the elbow and some above the elbow. same for the leg.

Hoep that helps.
