Routesetting Ratios

Follow the 80/20 philosophy of route setting. Set 20% of your routes at a 5.10 level of difficulty or higher, and set 80% of your routes at less than a 5.10 level of difficulty.

This will allow you to draw a larger audience of climbers, as your beginning and intermediate climbers will be successful in reaching the top but there will still be enough difficult terrain to engage your more expert climbers.
