Where do World Cup Climbers Clip From? – Finals Route
Aleksandra Dagunts and I built these clipping heat maps to see if we can learn anything from the clipping hold of World Cup climbers on a Finals route.
- No climber clips below the first two climbers
- Only Anak Verhoeven clips below a climber who had a higher rank.
- Is it possible that the better climbers clip from lower down? Or is it route specific? Or is this just a bad signal of a possible correlation?”
Where do World Cup Climbers Clip From? – Semi-Final Route
What about a Semi-Finals route with more climbers?
The idea that better climbers clip lower does not appear to be born out. Do you see another pattern?
