Bouldering grades???

Post by jeffblane » Thu Jan 15, 2009 3:59 pm


Im very new to bouldering but totally loving it!
Just not sure how the grading works.
How do the font and V systems compare to the french system?
SA 24 = 7a/+ depending how you grade.
V3 = .....
Font 6b = ......

Any help would be really great.

I prefer not to try to compair Route grades to Bouldering grades. They are two independant systems. Marathon runners don't compare their times with sprinters. :afro:
