100 point days were pretty hard to get BITD...but then I learned that you get points for down climbing a route as well !

Later on, in the QQ we would do 85 points on TR in 10 minute span..no rests. of course that was only 150' of climbing, but hard.

Thanks, John.  TR counts for us, lead counts for a little more.  Not sure about LL though.
I might have heard about the game from Coach, come to think about it. 
I knwo he taught some of us the "add-on" game.  I should take that one up again now that small laser pointers are so inexpensive at Staples and such.

The points game has been around forever..we used to do this with Coach Niland all the time..1oo point days ..etc.  It's training for climbing..and it can be fun.

I guess top roping isn't valid in your world ?  Well it sure taught me a lot..

We have been playing this "points" game on-and-off for a long time, LL.  Our version is to get 100 points from 10 routes.  Leading instead of TR gives you one or two more points.  And we score 10-/10a as 10 points, 10+/10d as 13 points, and so on.

It is some thing similar that I heard from Base. Rules can change from sport to trad and I don't think that there is official rules for that.

As I never heard any body fro Boston or Rhode island talking about it, I think that it is not a game that people workout very often and in could be fun, with a six pack at the end, that two or three party play the game at willard, pinacle or canon.

Sneoh because you know the game doesn't means that other people can't play it in a trad way. First time I come to north Conway, I found the cliff so high that I was afraid. When I came back from the nose in yosemite, I feel that it is just a little hill, not too vertical. It is obvious that what you work out influence the way you see things and if trad climbers have a game that power up the stamina that a climber need to onsight royal arches in the yos at his first time...why not? Note that if you want to climb a boulder a little bit higher than twenty feet... the game will be different. You don't need as much stamnina as power.   

By doing standard on white horse (see my example), you can compete for the six pack with your friend who can climb 5.10, and have fun too, without being in the intouchable, so great and, wow!, amazing "sub +11". In that point, that I think at climber of all range and that friend can use a version of the game for trad, I don't agree with Sneoh, deep seated beliefs in sport, of the game: "This is training for climbing, nothing to do with trad versus sport versus anything, contrary to your deep-seated beliefs".

Sorry LL...5.6..5.7 and 5.8 don't equal 5.10 no matter how you figure it.

Oh ! that's right I'm an elitist...never mind

And S is right... it doesn't matter if it's trad or sport or gym or bouldering  it's just climbing

We also have news for you.  This is training for climbing, nothing to do with trad versus sport versus anything, contrary to your deep-seated beliefs.  We have had huge amount of fun doing this at the gym in the dead of winter involving climbers of all stripes and experience.  For a little added motivation, and only in the safety of a gym, we try for 100 points from 10 routes in less than 2 hours which unexpectedly proved to be quite a challenge for us sub .11+ climbers :)
