Grading 31-May-2004 At 12:42:14 PM CJ

Not meaning to jump down anyone's throat here, but is it not a case of horses for courses? Serp is more a combination of long sustained climbing with many moves around G24/5 (knowledge here from belaying Andrew L on this climb some years ago). In some cases is it not a more difficult thing to grade those routes which are sustained / endurace fests rather than routes with distinct crux sequences or section etc.
Question? Do we grade for hardest move or an overall feel? Or some sort of combination?
Again more subjectivity entering the equation here... how bout a first ascentionists strenghts / weaknesses / style - resulting in a grade intrepretation. It's obvious that there are many elements which go towards grading, not just "how our system works"!
