That's like asking if 6'2" and 6'0" men are equal on a basketball court. Statistically the former are better, but you can be super good at any height. The best female climbers are better than 99.99% of male climbers.

Years back Lynn Hill wrote an article for R&C or Climbing "I grovel better than Greg Child". Entertaining read. Cant remember if it was a Trango ascent but a fun read. Sorry cant find the article right now or I would share.
All my encounters with LH have always been delightful and gracious. Super Duper Peops IMO.
My experience with female climbers/partners that are out there "really doing it". Ya know the stuff that will make most of the boyzzzzzzz butt pucker and quickly scamper for a "good ole Verm" excuse and head to the tavern to "talk about it".

Mucho respect for the female speicies climber/whatever. AND Female can give birth. whew! That type natural pain threshold in hard to beat.
My two cents but what the hell do I know?

Chef say "boys dont trust anything that bleeds for entire week every month and never dies"

represent ladies!

I was merely commenting that your particular brand of misogyny is as washed up and as tired as your attempts at humor.

In my opinion, the outdoor arena is a gender equalizer. My wife and I have been climbing for several years and it essentially breaks down like this. She's and extremely athletic woman, as is her sister but in different ways. My wife has far more natural ability than her sister but her sister, while not being up to the 5.10 mark can climb longer than anyone, male or female, than I have ever seen.

We have all taken the same technique classes together and started climbing at the same time. In straight up gym technique I have them both beat. In raw strength we aren't even remotely in the same class. I'm a fairly big dude and she's an extremely petite Latina. In the gym, I surpass them in every area. Outdoors, the gap in our skills is MUCH smaller. A 5.11+ in the gym is outside her current ability but I've seen her CRUSH a 5.11+ I did without breaking a sweat. What I find is that her petite size coupled with her natural athleticism is equal in advantage outdoors as my strength and height is in the indoor gym.
