Characterize your tolerance for unprotected climbing

Farther to the right means the higher the level of difficulty you will climb unprotected to get safe (e.g., reach pro) so long as any injury from a fall is fully recoverable (e.g., simple broken bone).

Farther upward means the higher the level of difficulty you will climb unprotected to get safe (e.g., reach pro) even though a fall means certain death.

The vertical axis and horizontal axis do not necessarily have the same scale. Yes, it is totally subjective.

The names are male-ish but not the character traits. It is an equal opportunity chart!

The vote: which do you think you are?

I thought of this question when I realized that I had climbing partners in at least 3 of the 4 categories who's company I enjoy out on the rock.

Other thoughts if you care to post an answer:

a) Do individual folks tend to naturally progress
through most/all of these during their life time of climbing?

b) Are any of these types not compatable as climbing partners?

... just for fun.

Bill
