[pct-l] re: Side Climbs


  Mt. Thielson is a class 2 - 3, I think; Mt. McLaughlin a 2.  The AT up
Katahdin would be a 2 - 3, if it weren't for the iron rungs, etc.  This is all
the American (Yosemite) climbing grades, not sure what Norway uses, nor am I
sure how the French and English classify the lower non-technical end.  Brian
again explained it rather well, though some people might want a rope on a class
3, while others won't even use one on easy class 5.
