Rating Routes

Mountaineers must be able to assess a vertical obstacle, develop a course of action to overcome the obstacle, and have the skills to accomplish the plan. Assessment of a vertical obstacle requires experience in the classifications of routes and understanding the levels of difficulty they represent. Without a solid understanding of the difficulty of a chosen route, the mountaineer can place their life and the life of their party in extreme danger. Ignorance is the most dangerous hazard in the mountain environment.
