Anybody else here colour blind, and struggle at the gyms when similar coloured routes are set beside each other? I do..

Yes, it's the thing that annoys me most climbing indoors. You do get a much better workout if you hang on every hold, turning around to ask your belayer which of the next holds are in.

I think it's more of a case of all the holds attaining a similar hue of human hand grease...

Yep, Dr Mulch is seeing the Canberra climbing gym fungus which rapidly camouflages all holds. It washes off easily enough, but that would be work...

Yep. It's really effing annoying.

Yep, I'm classic red green CB. Some sections of gyms I straight-out avoid due to cronic confusion of holds that I have trouble desciminating between. Bad combinations include (take note, route setters!) reds and greens, reds and browns, greens and browns, blues and purples. About 1 in 10 males is classic red green CB.

Why not climb for your own pleasure, and tell your belayer that you will aim for every third hold, say, rather than letting the Daltonism affect your joy of the gym?

Shaggy who was instrumental in the construction of the Lactic Factory, was colour blind so I started a system up where we would set individual problems in one brand only. So if you learn what holds belong to which brand it makes route finding a whole lot easier.
Of course if we had a red problem set next to a green problem in the same brand it'd still cause trouble but he could usually pick out enough lines to entertain him for the night.
