Route/Problem Count Summary

As of October 9, 2008, here are the current route counts:

  • 45 lead routes
  •   7 top-rope routes
  • 32 route variations (a long traverse across up-routes creates an unusually large number of high-quality route variations)
  • 37 boulder problems

The grade distribution of lead routes and toprope routes:

  • 1 at 5.6
  • 1 at 5.7/5.8 
  • 1 at 5.8
  • 7 at 5.9

  • 18 at 5.11
  • 10 at 5.12
  • 2 estimated at 5.13
  • 2 estimated at 5.sick/nasty 

Variations add the following:

  • 2 at 5.8
  • 3 at 5.9
  • 10 at 5.10
  • 11 at 5.11
  • 4 at 5.12
  • 2 at 5.sick/nasty

The boulder problems range V0 to an estimated V7, with 9 whose difficulties have not been estimated.  15 of them are V0's.

I keep an Excell database of routes and boulder problems to record bolters, FA's, FOA's, and various people's grade opinions while we arrive at grades for each route.  The guidebook and the signs under each route are of more general use, but you can download the route database and sort by grade, grade/wall, wall/grade, etc. at http://www.freewebs.com/johnhogge/releaseformguidebook.htm.
