to include the 15th grade. Jaws II at Rumney got repeated and is called 15a and there are plenty of other 15s now around the world. M Sprague

Might as well go with 5.17d. I'm bound to break out of this 5.10 rut any day now. Eric Krantz

FYI, this is actually beyond the privileges of admins. It lies in the domain of the site landlords. I think they may both be busy. I'll forward this on to them. Leo Paik

While the landlords are fixing that, could they add
an Aid listing to the current Route Finder search engine?
From C1 up to A5, Ice ratings would be cool also.

There is probably more people aid climbing here then huffin 5.15.

Who cares, after about 5.12a, it's all teh same. No need to grade it any further out.

5.12a
5.12 A1
5.12 A2
5.12 A3
5.12 A4
5.12 A5

Anything past that is just theoretical anyway!

I honestly thought that the grading scale topped out at 5.11 OW. Brent Apgar

Well you’re at it add 5.10d/11a, 11d/12a, ect. as you added all the other subgrades. Not including those is just incomplete. You wouldn’t skip 5.12 and just have it go from 5.11 to 5.13 would you?
