I started outdoor climbing in January 2019. My first lead climbing outdoors was in March 2019. Every lead outdoor climb I have ever done is on this profile. I am new to climbing, but very keen
Approach to personal grades
Because I am new to climbing I almost always take the grade assigned. The exception is if I perceive that there is an easier line to clip the bolts than "was intended". My attitude is that you almost never have the FA with you to tell you which holds are in, so unless explicit in the description, all holds are in. In which case, if an easier line has been ignored, then I will offer a lower grade to reflect the easiest line.
Approach to logging ascent types
(1) Onsight - if I haven't seen anything about the climb that could help me climb it, and I climb it at first asking with no gear pre-placed.
(2) Flash - I know something about the climb, usually because I just watched my partner onsight it. Usually the gear is on, as my partner typically doesn't remove the gear until we are finished climbing the route.
(3) Redpoint - If I didn't onsight or flash, then red point is a clean climb of the route, whether or not the gear is on. The rope might be pre-clipped into the first quickdraw for safety reasons. I don't distinguish between red point and "pink point".
(4) Hangdog - if I climbed to the top of the route, but rested on the rope (either by falling or calling a take). The only other aid I would use and call it a hangdog is pulling myself up the rope a bit after a hang. This means I will have always placed all quickdraws from a clipping stance, and I would have attained the clipping stance by climbing unaided from the last clipped bolt or earlier. If I have to use other aid (like holding a dogbone, or standing in a sling) then I do not count it as a hangdog.
(5) Working - if I wasn't trying to climb the route and was just working the moves. Or if I topped it out, but I needed to use aid other than hanging and pulling up on the rope (see hangdog).
(6) Attempt - I was trying to get to the top, but I failed or retreated.
