Speciaal een topic voor Bart

In lijn met Bart zijn weddenschap van vorig jaar: 5 wazige/rare/zelden geklommen routes in Freyr.

Ik kwam dit geniaal stukje geschreven klim-manuscript van de hand van Cedar Wright tegen op internet, en moest meteen aan Bart's weddenschap denken:

"My old friend Brian “Coiler” Kay, who was my dirtbagging guru and mentor, invented a funny but informative rating system called the “Obscurity” system. The O-system came about as a critique of sorts to the fact that most climbers stick only to a few popular routes and rarely—if ever—venture into the unknown. The Obscurity rating was also meant to be a motivator to step off the trade routes. Climbs worthy of an “O” rating were relatively unfrequented and unknown—a guaranteed adventure! At the upper end of the closed “O-grade” system was O4, which was the second or third ascent of a route. An O5 was a route of legend, meaning there was a tale of it having been climbed but no topo and no conclusive evidence. Finally there was the coveted O6, a grade retroactively assigned to a climb that no longer exists."

Ik neem aan dat er wel enkele O3's en misschien O4's te vinden zijn in Freyr? Laat het opzoekwerk en de discussies beginnen!
