Questions for mods or those in the know: I see that the classics page (for all areas) has changed. I am curious how these classics are calculated? Used to be the Top 50 climbs in an area were calculated with a forumula taking into account rating, number of tics/ratings, and difficulty. Now there is more than 50.

I have been working on the top Utah 50 classics from MP for 2 years now (I know that it is a living/changing list, just a goal of mine). Just curious how these are calculated?!

Basically, whenever you get close to ticking them all, we change it.

Haha! Funny. Its not something I ever expect to get to 100%, just gives me good direction. Nick? Insight?

I'm pretty sure it is some formula that factors in star rating and number of ticks. I'm not sure the exact formula or method though but have always been curious myself.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
