Damn straight, someone has to set the bottom. I mean, come on, I have climbed four VIs on El Cap, five grade Vs, 20+ IVs up to 5.12+, 10,000+ pitches over the last 11 years in 50+ locations worldwide. I can also lead A3 and 5.12 and I have taken around 1,000 lead falls getting there. I have also climbed internationally-recognized lines like Astroman and The Nose (neither of which are the hardest lines I have done) and I am considering climbing a grade VII next year. Yet I am the largest noob on the forum. Well, at least we know what the bottom standard is. I am sure curious as to what everyone else climbs if I am at the bottom. Maybe RC.com can teach me how to free-solo-onsight-free-climb A5?
I don't know about n00b, but you sure have egomaniac spray-lord nailed.

I'm just selecting this bit from your barrage of spray. You know what "sending" is, right? You probably sent Astroman; after all, it's only a 5.11, so to free climb the entire thing in good style would be pretty casual.

Oh, and can you tell me which specific Grade IV/5.12+ it is that you have sent (again: send = free ascent, no aiding. Otherwise, you should be using aid ratings, not free ratings)?

For the record, "Pancakes" is the leading answer to the OP's original question. I think that speaks volumes.

Anybody who would use info from the internet to climb is NUTS. Ya need a qualified instructor to teach, show and then watch you preform ever new skill. Not only the 'how' but the ' why '. Buy some good medical insurance.
