new ROUTEs

We typically do most of the route work on Monday and Wednesday mornings, but new routes can appear at any time. As of Sunday, May 21st, 2017 there are 5 new routes this week and a total of 80 routes in the gym. These are the routes, or “problems”, currently set in the gym. Enjoy.

CLIMBING HOLDS

The foundation of a quality climbing route not only lies in the route setter, but in its holds.  Our holds are supplied by leading hold manufactures and designed by professional shapers from around the world. As part of our effort to Keep it Green, the Beta only purchases holds that are made from non-toxic resins and are safe for the environment.

HOW ROUTES ARE GRADED

The Beta uses the “V Scale” for grading our boulder problems. For easy identification, all Routes are color coded with tape and labeled with their associated V Grade. The color represents its level of difficulty with white being the easiest and orange being the hardest.

White: VB-V1
Yellow: V2-V3
Green: V4-V5
Blue: V6-V7
Red: V8-V9
Orange: V10 or harder

More information on this widely-used V Scale system can be found here.
