Considering that most first timers can get up routes in the neighborhood of 14 I'd suggest that your budding, possibly troll-like, grade 10 lead climber should push on with steely determination and the knowledge that he/she could easily club 4 grades harder on top rope.

PS I regularly sweat my way up grade 10s, usually loudly proclaiming that they're undergraded by at least 6 grades.
