Introduction course to rock climbing: The first ascent / tips


First Ascent:

It is usually the first ascent who names and grades a route. The grade will usually be about right, and will be accepted by other climbers after a short period of time. However sometimes a route has been over or under graded at first ascent, and it can therefor seem harder or easier for other climbers. Such discrepancies will usually be corrected over time.
