The name “5.11 Tactical” has specific origins. Their 5.11 Tactical Pants were first developed for rock climbing, and “5.11” is a rock climbing difficulty level equating to practically impossible.

  1. It is a matter of extreme exaggeration to call a 5.11 climb “nearly impossible” unless you are talking about the climb being attempted by someone not trained for climbing to this level of difficulty. The rating system currently goes to 5.14 and I believe some climbs are contemplated at 5.15. Within the range of 5.14, for example, there are many changes in difficulty denoted by adding the letter a, b, c, and d to the end. 5.14a, 5.14b, etc.
