nobody cares about numbers, especially other people's numbers. We are just climbing rock ya know.

If you care go find out. I suspect you are younger.

The fact that your profile say you lead 5.7 and follow 5.11 says a lot.

You are too extreme for climbing man. Climbing isn't for extreme cool kids anymore...haven't you heard? You aren't cool unless you have a squirrel suit!! That's the thing cool people are doing now. Get out of the climbing game man, quick!! It will ruin your image. You will get tons of babes and people will think you are super cool. Just get a squirrel suit and rig. You are so cool you may not need any training just jump. Ty Harlacker

See at the top of your browser window where there's a long box with letters in it? It starts with "http". Change the words that say "mountainproject" to "rockclimbing" and you'll get the answers you're looking for. Along with 300 others that you aren't. cjdrover

this is an important question? why dont you just go climb some stuff thats fun? I think rating climbs as "fun" or "not fun" is more important than some contrived numbering system. But yeah I guess you could climb 5.17c(X?) clay meier

I love how everyone was so agressive towards him for no reason. Kinda makes me want to jump on the bandwagon too!
But seriously, you'd probably fit in better at rockclimbing.com

I stand by both my sarcastic comment and my real comment. My point being that it's a bit of a silly question and that your best bet really is to pick something harder than you've ever climbed and try it. Maybe you'll succeed quickly. If so, pick something harder. If not, work it until you can do it.

No one is going to be able to tell you from across the internet how hard you might climb if you worked something for a while. It's just impossible. We can't know if you're super strong but with shaky technique and not a lot of confidence on lead or if your technique is awesome but you struggle bad on steep routes. Without that kind of detailed knowledge of your climbing abilities and style we really can't give you good concrete advice on this subject.

So, pick something hard and try it! If you're talking Rumney, what about Social Outcast or Flesh For Lulu?

And yet you took the time to check his profile because you just don't care.

More often than not this has become more like 8a.nu, where people judge your opinions based on your tick list or listed abilities. This whole thread is kind of superfluous. Like they say, the numbers don't matter. Just get whatever you want out of climbing, but don't worry about how hard you or anyone else climbs. Have fun maybe.

If your body can take it, mid .12 is where things get really hard, in my opinion. I'd try working a .12a and see how it goes. Evan S
