Dude, you're focussing too much on grade and forgetting about style. Get Wendy onto some of those stupid off-width roof boulders you see in those Yankee videos, and she'll smash the shit out of V5. But back in the normal world of regular bouldering, where you grab small crimps, lock 'em down and reach..............being 5 foot tall with short arms and dodgy pulleys is something of a handicap.

Not wanting to blow too much smoke up anyones arse, but I reckon a really under appreciated facet of being a good climber is diversity of styles. People like HB and Dave Jones might not have climbed numbers as big as a lot of other people, but check out the range of different stuff they put up.

I almost reckon that the measure of how good you are isn't the hardest climb you can do, but the easiest climb you can't! Who gives a fuch if you can climb 28 at South Central. If there's a gr16 offwidth at Buffalo that shuts you down, you're a gr15 climber :)
