Thanks for sharing that Mark. That scale is simple and encompasses a lot. Rings true right off the bat. I suspect though that if you tried to join Type III to Type I, it might be so forced as to nullify the scale.
Hmmmmm..... Maybe my head is thicker than others. A lot of my climbing was Type III. Haven't you ever made a pact with God that you'd quit climbing if he got you down alive? I made such a pact with God -- many, many times.

The possibility that that can even happen is what keeps me coming back. It's like gambling; I keep thinking 'next time, when the conditions are a little different, or when I've trained a little harder, or....'
