the reality which im seeing every single day up here in squamish is that there are plenty of climbers who come up here with skills that are minimally practiced and jump on the many moderate multis we have up here ...

totaly agree

wish that those people who climb with too much responsability to practice there skill will understand that sport climbing is also a great sport. The goal are different and the time invest to climb at the same level is shorter in trad, but it is a smart choice to do sport if you don't have time to practice. Just don't bother those who have time to praqctice.

in the 60 - 70, they said that 60% of the time on the cliff is used to practice there skill. A 5.10 climber need fifteen hours of training to keep is level. In trad, it is still true, but if you don't have too much time, sport is a very good alternative to a lack of time to train.
