  1. Where I climb, there are "Any Feet" routes. That means you can use any foothold, even if it's not on your specific route.

  2. So happy our gym stopped using tape. Now they just use features that are colored in like colors for a given route. Sooo much better, but does require a large stock of features.

  3. It's actually Hueco Tanks near El Paso. I also mistook it for Waco Tanks the first time I heard it. Hueco Tanks is about a 10 hour drive from Waco.

  4. In My gym, the boulder problem start grips, and the end hold is Marked with a tape, that Also signals the difficulty, the Walls here seem incredibly Messy and confusing.

  5. In my gym, we use the V system the most, but have the others up as well. We don't use tape everywhere, though, only on the bottom of each climb has two tapes by the holds on which your hands are meant to start on, and the whole climb/route is always in one colour, like just blue or purple or yellow, which also corresponds to the difficulties of the climbs going from purple to blue, lime, red and dark green, with yellow and black being special ones.

  6. Yeah, crazy, didnt know its so different sometimes, we just start with colours and signs there, yellow, blue, black, green, red, grey, pink is the order

  7. we just use one colour in top rope/ belay, and they're graded by 5a,5a+,5b,5c,5d,5e and then 6a etc till 7something, and v grade for bouldering, so much easier

  8. I didn't see any French grades on here, it starts at around 3 being very easy, then to 3+ and it does that up to 5+ then it goes to 6a then 6a+ to 6c+ then it goes to 7a. Increasing indefinitely. The highest I've heard of is around 9b+. It's used for top roping and leading
