No - it's nothing like that. A restaurant review is a qualitative matter. A comparison would be asking you if you think my described route is a 'good route'. I'm not.

I'm talking about giving a theoretical idea of the difficulty of a route given you know the height of the route (8 metres), type of rock (granite) and technical difficulty of all the moves (V7 three-points-off dyno to a bunch of V0 to V2 moves). Route takes fiddly small gear, but go ahead and give me your views on how bolts would change the grade. Exposure - minimal. I believe that covers off all the Ewbank bases?

If you don't have any guesses or suggestions, that's fine, no need to respond. I'm not expecting anything definitive, but I'm hoping for input from people who have or routinely do put up new routes (having an experience of bouldering grades is obviously a BIG plus). Thanks to ben, baz74 and ajf for your constructive responses! 23 is starting to sound like an attractive number.
