A Probability-Based Algorithm for Evaluating Climbing Difficulty Grades

Abstract

This paper describes a new mathematical model for the estimation of the grade of a climbing route. The calculation is based on the association of several route and boulder sections separated by rests. Contrary to other similar methods, this model introduces a probabilistic approach describing the uncertainty that one can have about the grade and the different feelings that climbers can have on a route grade. Several aspects of the model are commented and studied. A short comparative study of some of the hardest routes in the world is also presented.
