Hi all,

I wrote a little thing here: climbcore.wordpress.com/201…  

Basically i took the 8a database and tried some high level visualization on it. I thought the results were nice and the large amount of data gave me a lot of hope in terms of climbing in my 30s/40s, moving towards a lower bmi and height not mattering that much.

Let me know what you think!

This is awesome. Important to note that this is just correlation but its SUPER interesting to look through. Awesome work!

You should do some statistical hypothesis testing.

You might also consider the height and weight components of BMI separately (and think about a quadratic term for weight).

super cool! would be helpful to have clear data labels for all axes (you do for most, but not all) and figure titles as it's not always obvious which graph represents what.

Wonderful data sets. Always fun to have more arguments when somebody tells me "it's just because you're tall"

well, i did consider height independently, seemed weakly related. But good idea, i was looking at other formulas for this.
