Gym Manager Alumni here-
point to the most overhung wall and say, "I climb that hard." (because you do)

A 5.12c sport climb at the gorge means nothing to someone who can't grasp the concept of colored tape or the "purple route."

***and if you really must take the frat boy up on his offer, let him climb first and make an ass of himself and when it's his turn to belay you, ballerina up your favorite route. Let him try the same route next (suddenly the "tape" concept means more than just "pretty" and grades come to life!)

Or just turn um lose on the overhang, let um pump out after 2 goes and call it a day.

Depends on how much time you want to invest getting a nonclimber to understand climbing.

edited to switch an "a" for an "o".
