Hey whats going on all? Im just kinda curious as to what kind of climbs most climbers will do after a certain amount of time of climbing. (Kind of a awkward sentence there). Ive been climbing for about a year and a half and im realy into it. Im leading 8s, 9s, and 10as, and i hauled my self up a 11a, but what are most people like after this amount of time? Im only 14, but im just kind of curious as to what peoples abilities are after that amount of time. cheers

It really depends on how much you push yourself. Do you train 5 days a week, or do you do it only on the weekends? How do you train? What do you train on? It all depends.

I've only been climbing for 2 years...

My best ticks are:
5.10c leading trad/crack
5.11c leading sport/face
5.12b TRing face
V4 Bouldering

I need to work more at my 'blue collar' climbing, i.e. CRACK.

Now, to add a real response.

Topics of this nature have been done numerous times here in the recent past. Simply browse through the message boards, or use the search feature and you will find what you desire.

I'd lock this thread if I could or at least move it to the "been there done that 50,000 times before thread" forum...but I can't. Which is why you all should vote for me as an admin. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I agree completely with pianohman. I too have done that a few times where it has been done before, you just have to check your resources a little more before you post.
