Add "climbing:grade:french*" grades 3/4

Reported by: overflorian Owned by: Don-vip
Priority: normal Milestone: 21.02
Component: Internal preset Version:
Keywords: climbing grade french Cc:


The validation tool of JOSM should allow ALL the french climbing grades for the following tags:

  • climbing:grade:french
  • climbing:grade:french:min
  • climbing:grade:french:max
  • climbing:grade:french:mean

All the grades are listed in this table:
Here is the full list: 1;2;3;4a;4b;4c;5a;5b;5c;6a;6a+;6b;6b+;6c;6c+;7a;7a+;7b;7b+;7c;7c+;8a;8a+;8b;8b+;8c;8c+;9a;9a+;9b;9b+;9c

When I added the grades in r14591/#16525 I used the French table instead:

It doesn't make the distinction between different levels of 4. It matches with my own climbing experience.

I also excluded 1-2-3. Are these grades really used outside? I only though of them as purely theoretical.

French Wikipedia states:

La cotation 1 correspond à un sentier escarpé tandis que la cotation 2 correspond à une progression en marchant avec éventuellement les mains pour s'équilibrer ou négocier le terrain (une corde est rarement nécessaire). En plus des mains pour s'équilibrer, la cotation 3 peut nécessiter, en complément des jambes, une traction des bras pour progresser.

Not really "climbing" to me...

Thanks for your reply.
I understand your concern and, from my own climbing experience, I never ever encountered a 1 or 2 grade. Grade 3 is mostly the "children area", which could make sense.
I used it with the "climbing:grade:french:min" tag here: since there is actually a 3c grade route at this spot cf.
Therefore we should add the 3 grade, and maybe 3c too.
Nevertheless I understand if you think that 3c doesn't really make sense, but I still encountered it.

OK to add grade 3 (+variants) and 4 variants as they exist in the real world (thanks for the link) and are used in OSM db:

We both agree that grade 1/2 are pointless :)
