This is similar to randori in my opinion
http://www.abc-of-rockclimbing.com/w...binggrades.asp for rating system comparison. About 5b in your terms. I climb mostly outside, mostly to get to the top of mountains. The randori aspects really start when birds fly over and drop rocks or goats object to your presence.

Have fun,
