^^^are you serious.

if you climb, then you should know your abilities at what grade route you can climb. If you don't climb, then find a competent partner or guide and start climbing the easiest climbs.

I can be difficult to look at a climb and guess what the rating or grade of the route is.

Its the internet dude just make that shit up!! When it comes time to throw down on the rock just feign an injury. For example I regularly onsight 5.14d...Im just always injured when I climb with a partner. See it works.

Seriously though I know some climbers rate themselves by their hardest redpoint, I rate my self on my onsight ability even though I can climb harder grades. Its up to you really. Most people I know don't care.

One way to find out I guess is to find the grade you fall at more than You climb??
