I Never declare a rateing on an FA. I wonder out loud what i think it might be and then ask other folks to give an opinion. I have one friend who is a bit of a dick about it and downgrades everything if he was not part of the FA team...

What's in a grade

A rating by any method will still be an educated guess.

When Brave New World came out the playing field was clean and even and the set of tools available to most everyone was the same...a rack of nuggets.

Those times on that gear are as good a basis of comparison on which to make an educated guess as we will ever have.

The trend toward upgrading crack routes based on the thrash and effort factor is pretty amusing with a rack of cams. I would love to hear what the ratings would become on a steady diet of Hexes and Stoppers. LOL
