    When did this happen? V to YDS

    Iíve always been told (and google confirms)
    Vb=5.8 and below
    V0=5.9
    V1=5.10+
    V2=5.11
    Or something very similar

    The last two guidebooks I bought (mammoth and Tahoe west, both from same publisher) use this

    Are you saying that a 5.11 is a sustained v2 the whole way up? Or they are equally comparable in difficulty to complete?

    That chart seems way off to me. I thought 7a was 5.11d and my international climbing experience agrees. No way it's 12b/c.

    Font is not normal French. It's a bouldering guide.
    A 7A boulder Crux is usually in a 7c (5.12c?) sport( if It's short).
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.
