(I'm a 5.12 lead climber... that 5.10 sport route that used to have no bolt on the crux and now has one should be downgraded to a 5.7. Don't mind my 5.12 routes that are well bolted... I'm climbing at my limit and my limit is considered 'high'.)

(Unlikely, as I have climbed every single route in the country, and can speak with assurance when I say that a 5.4 at The Gunks/Cathedral/Canon/Random Obscure 40' Tall Crag is harder than a 5.17 in Eldo/Jtree/IC. In fact Chris Sharma probably couldn't even redpoint the routes I warm up on. Because everyone knows sport climbing isn't.)

(self righteously insults most recent "fail" video, "why didn't he do this, this guy should not be climbing." Followed by a several posters attempting to explain the situation, one poster "going taco" because poster is a young age, thread quickly spirals into back and forth insults with little bearing on original topic)
