Here’s a handy climbing conversion chart I’m posting for myself, since I’m constantly forgetting how shitty I climb.

Plus, a nifty article on the history of climbing grading systems.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Bouldering Grades

Everybody knows that the V-scale takes its name from John Sherman’s nickname, “Verm” or “Vermin.” But did you know it was his publisher for the 1991 edition of the Hueco Tanks Climbing and Bouldering Guide, George Meyers of Chockstone Press, whom we should really thank?

Geometrical visualisation of a 4D shape from a 3D Perspective - The Tesseract
Hypercubes are shapes with n dimensions where n is greater than the 3 dimensions of a normal cube. The Tesseract, or the 4-cube, is a 4 dimensional hypercube.
where n is the dimensional number, in any hypercube:

vertices = 2^n
edges = n(2^n-1 )
faces = 2^n-3(n-1)n

An escaped sheep was found with 60 pounds of wool.
Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on its body, enough to make 20 suits! The sheep became famous and even got to meet the Prime Minister. Shrek finally passed away last month at the age of 16.

Its name was Shrek.
