This one kinda sucks... The trad one was much better

n00b

Read the time stamps. Jay basically wrote the trad one, too.

I wouldn't say that I basically wrote the trad version. Rather, some n00b who didn't like his score on this test (not that this test was ever intended for self-scoring) went and developed a supposed trad version. But his version fails for two reasons: one, being a n00b himself, he gave completely wrong scores for many items; and, two, he based some items (like helmets) on value judgments, rather than observation.

P.S. I made a rare visit to Holcomb Valley Pinnacles this weekend, and believe me, this test is valid. I should have taken a few illustrative portraits.
