I really enjoyed this orange V3 to V5.
Climbing uses lots of its own terminology to describe things like movement, hold shapes, even our hand position, let's take the word Beta for instance, most of us know what this means.
Beta is climbing jargon that designates information about a climb. The complexity of a beta can range from a small hint about a difficult section to a step-by-step instruction of the entire climb. In rock climbing, this may include information about a climb's difficulty, crux, style, length, quality of rock, ease to protect, required equipment, and specific information about hand or footholds.
But where did the word even originate from?
The original use of the term Beta in climbing is generally attributed to the late climber Jack Mileski. "Beta" was short for Betamax, a reference to an old videotape format largely replaced by the VHS format. According to some sources, Mileski would record himself on tape while completing routes and then share these tapes with friends. According to other sources, it was actually a play on words, as Mileski would often ask, "you want the beta, Max?"( information credited Wikipedia). Got to love the 80's.
