Question for the climbers
What are the rules for a multi pitch
if i Fall do I have to start at the bottom again or do I just try the pitch again
Do I have to lead all the pitches to make it count
Rules? You’re climbing for your own enjoyment and absolutely nothing else. Unless you’re an elite sponsored athlete, your ascents matter not at all, and to no one but you.
To have “sent” or “ticked” a route that means climbing each pitch clean, without falls. If you want to “claim” a successful ascent of a route, each pitch must be done clean, with no falls. If you lower to the anchor the rope must be pulled.
The one possible exception to this is a “team free” ascent of a bigwall, where one climber leads the pitch and the other climber jugs the pitch. This is a specific style pioneered on some of the hardest free routes on El Cap. It’s not an ideal style but was necessary in a few unique situations.
Damn I thought as long as you're going up the mountain you were winning
