5.8–7.3mm

Climbing - - THE CLIMB THE BETA -

Size range of the edges on which the most skilled par­tic­i­pants ( 5.13 and 5.14 climbers) showed the great­est force pro­duc­tion, con­sis­tently out­per­form­ing 5.11 and 5.12 climbers. How­ever, on larger or smaller edges, there was no sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence. This might be be­cause the small­est holds on 5.13s and 5.14s rarely fall out­side this range, and so climbers around this level are specif­i­cally adapted to pull on holds of that size.
