This excellent article was posted by PellucidWombat over at SummitPost.

A lot of climbers seem to scoff at this type of quantitative analysis and prefer to go on the subjective "feel" of gear, but I really enjoyed this writeup.

this is really cool. i'd love to see all those cam ranges on the same chart so you can more easily compare sizes across brands.

That article was nuts. Hard to believe that crunching all that data and making all those cute charts would be helpful to someone who is trying to learn crack/gear sizes, but I guess we're all wired different.

If you have the right graphing program, charts like that can be spit out in no time at all.

All that stuff is great. In the end though, it just confirms what I've kinda know all along...

Metolius needs to make a 1.5 and 3. TCU/Mastercam! Least amount of overlap of any cams in that range. A PITA if you ask me. CCH had their overlaps more dialed in...

The biggest problem with the entire analysis is that he says smearing only applies for cracks up to 4". He lost all credibility there.
