When I first started climbing in the early eightys climbing was a TEAM sport.
A team can be define in two ways: 1- a group of players forming one side in a competitive game or sport and 2-a group of people who work together. When I was climbing and will climb with my partner, we was a team. We were not competitive, but want to work together to go to a summit in good style. Some other people are more competitive. With the increase of difficulty, the climber need more hours to perform at a high level. I know some guy who climbed with a person in the morning and an other in the afternoon because climbing all day was to hard for the majority of the climber.
To be competitive, the majority of the climber have to cheat to look good. At the beginning, they were considered bad climber. A kind of war began between the trad ethic and an other activity not well define. Competition begin to appear here and there. If it is possible to compete to do a hard move in an inside wall, trad climber couldn't say climb that multi pitch route and if you died you are worst than me.
The actual sport climbing is more an evolution of the practice when the people cheat. Today, they climb very hard routes. They are done by training a move again and again. some route could take three years to be set. It is a sport where the glory is individual. After all, any body with a grisgris is able to belay some one else.
good style was define as: onsight ascent...which is not the case here; first free ascent, not the case; first ascent...which is he case...with one point of aid. Still a great climb
