As a beginner I would find it very helpfull to have some sorth of benchmark to indicate if I have been progressing fast enough. And I'm quite sure I'm not the only one.

If everyone could answer the following questions, it will be easy to compare your own rate of progression to that of other climbers.

Here's an example with my answers:


How long have you been climbing? 6 months
How many times do you climb a week/month? 2x/week (1 bouldering session and 1 lenghts)
How long does an average training session last? 2,5-3 hours
Do you take any coaching? No
Are you reading any literature on climbing? The Self-Coached Climber
Are you doing any other training to improve your climbing? 1x week upper boddy training, running (about 20 miles/week)

Indoor TR grade(you can climb at least 3 routes of this grade)? 5.10a (6a)
Indoor Lead grade? NA
Indoor Bouldering grade? V3 (6a/6b)
Outdoor TR grade? NA
Outdoor Lead grade? NA
Outdoor Bouldering grade? V2 (5/5+)

Please be honest, it's not a competition. Thank you!
