Ondra and Hill are the climbing heroes of 2017
  2017-11-24 00:00:00    
Based on polls, including 5 500+ unique votes, who are the male and female climbing heroes, here are the results. Interesting is that it is mainly outdoor climbers that did get most of the votes and no specific boulderer made it through. Originally many more name were mentioned but later they below 2 % were put into other.

33 % Adam Ondra - Lynn Hill 35 %
17 % Chris Sharma - Margo Hayes 12 %
12 % Wolfgang Güllich - Angela Eiter 11 %
07 % Alex Megos - Alex Puccio 10 %
06 % Alex Honnold - Janja Garnbret 10 %
05 % Tommy Caldwell - Josune Bereziartu 7 %
03 % Yuji Hirayama - Shauna Coxsey 6 %
10 % Other - Other 8 %

Here is the result of the 2015 poll:
23% Lynn Hill
10% Alex Puccio, Ashima Shiraishi
07% Anna Stöhr, Nina Caprez, Josune Bereziartu
05% Jain Kim, Shauna Coxsey, Sasha Digulian
04% Mina Markovic, Angela Eiter, Juliane Wurm, Janja Garnbret
02% Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou, Allizee Dufraisse, Muriel Sarkany

13 % Chris Sharma
12 % Adam Ondra
9 % Wolfgang Gülich
7 % Fred Nicole, Dave Graham
6 % Tommy Caldwell
5 % Nalle Hukkataival, Alex Megos, Alex Huber, Dani Andrada, Alex Honnold, Jimmy Webb
3 % Daniel Woods, Yuji Hirayama, Jan Hojer, Sean McColl

Well, unless I'm mistaken, you didn't actually include any male boulderers in the initial poll, meaning they had to be written in. That alone would seriously influence the results.

I am afraid you are wrong.

The percentages don't add up.

A bit sad to see how fast people forgets Josune's achievements.. the only one together with Lynn that climbed at top male level at their time.

I totally agree with @nschenks87.

The percentages do not add up because you forgot Dani Andrada in the results. Also where are these male boulderers then? Maybe there were some in the initial poll but why were they removed? Everyone in this list is primarily a lead or big wall climber. It wouldn't have hurt to include some well-known boulderers like Nalle, Dave or Daniel, who have been putting up hard and beautiful lines all over the world for more than a decade now. I agree that the names in the results should've been there, but completely ignoring the possible heroes of the bouldering community of this website is a joke.

As I have said some bouldering stars like Webb and Hukkataival were originally included but as they did not make it above 2 % they were removed in order to make the poll easier to follow. I guess the most mentioned from Other are Edlinger and Hukkataival but still it is spread out evenly which indicates we did not miss ant name that could have changed the list.

Dude. You are wrong on so many levels. This is really unforgivable, you change the the poll while it is running and then you present the results as if they still have any meaning.

I have a university degree in statistics. As the correction of the poll was made after some 200 votes and the result was presented after close to 3 000 votes, it is all good.
