Sport grades 'higher' than trad? 6-Nov-2011 At 5:01:22 PM Bultitude
at mount alexandra there is a corner i climbed (on sport)last weekend.

Originally it was called "corner from hell". grade 16 trad, first ascent was a free solo, gear on it would be bad. RP's, small nuts, c3's, maybe even a knifeblade if one was so inclined.

Now its bolted, the bolted version even says to take the easiest way to the top.

The bolted climb "corner from heaven" is 18.

So yeh some trad grades may be lower than sport grades.
