Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone can provide info on the requirements for mountains to be classified into the various categories (ie: Category 3, 2, 1, HC)? I've found the basic info (the steeper and longer, the tougher the category), but am looking for something a bit more definitive.

Thanks!

Chris

Hit the Articles tab and you'll see a link to a catagorization article.

more definitive. It's basically up to the race organizers to categorize a climb.
