very interesting thoughts on the whole grading debate

Alexander Huber is possibly the last of the truly accomplished all-round climbers. I can't think of anyone else who has climbed 15a, soloed 14a, soloed long 12a routes, established 5.14 R multipitch, freed multiple El Cap routes, summited an 8000m Himalayan peak--the list just goes on forever. There is certainly no-one in the US, not even Tommy Caldwell, who comes close. When he talks about grades and the future directions of climbing, I think it's worth listening.

Agreed. It is interesting to read that he still has a desire to climb big 8000m peaks too.
