the important thing is that the problems selected for a circuit are all around the same level of difficulty. I don't think this was clear before, because I think Simey was suggesting putting all problems into one of these classes (correct me on that, if i'm wrong). With circuits, only the problems of about the right grade would go into the circuit.

They probably thought using a guide book for bouldering was sad a few years ago (some still do). Both GPS to locate areas and paint works well at Font. Even though most folks don't want it at Arapiles (myself included), there's no need not to consider it. Is the whole of Font sad?
