For the sake of accuracy, I say we use planck lengths.

Bananas are always an accurate form of measurement.

Ahhhh, remember the hair and pay tribute to it.
Awesome banter aside, I agree. Let's start the movement to get the U.S. to stop using the imperial system. If the mountain project community can do that, then we nominate the top trolls for the presidency.

Speaking of trolls...OP that was such a benign and succinct post! You wrapped it up and left no room for debate... (he said trollingly)

Lebanon and Myanmar (Burma) can do whatever they want!

Jason both Myanmar and Liberia neither have the metric system nor have been to the moon.... it would make sense for us to get on board this whole measuring distance as a factor of 1/10,000,000th of the distance from the equator to the north pole, are yards used anywhere except a football field and measuring a pile of mulch?

i was paging through a climbing guide in the shop the other day and it was in meters. Although it might have been a book for somewhere in Canada...

We can only hope. Maybe authors would be nice enough to start by listing both. I'm sure users will see the obvious usefulness of seeing that 30 is indeed half of 60.

Heights listed in feet are much more impressive, with no more effort. Work smarter, not harder.

We should then standardize the length between bolts, I vote 4 feet.

I can deal with meters. But what I can't deal with is European climbing grades.

I'm tired of the base 60 time system. I wish someone would develop a metric system for that.

But they are so much easier to say. Plus, because I climb 10s, I will become a pro overnight if we switched over. So I might be biased so that I say I can climb 10b.

Hip trouble ...
How about a setting where a user can select "meters" as the length unit and *PRESTO* the entire site then displays all lengths in meters. One could even choose a grading system and see all climbs in French grades, or whatever ...
