Rfv-sense: "The hardest point of a climb". --EncycloPetey 22:07, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Cited. This is actually extremely common among rock-climbing types. —RuakhTALK 02:18, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I used to have a good friend who was a serious climber, but we live in different parts of the state now. I was at a loss as to how to search for a suitable quote, since I've never heard that sense used before. Your work will be especially useful since crux will be WOTD on the 21st. --EncycloPetey 05:35, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
No prob. I was also at a loss as to how to search for it, short of just rock climbing crux. Usually I try to get quotes from a few different searches, but this was too hard. (And if I didn't know a bunch of rock-climbers from college, I wouldn't have recognized the sense, so probably wouldn't have caught what "a climb" meant.) —RuakhTALK 19:37, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
