Yes he sounded like he was after grade 20's... not.

Instead of trying to display your unsurpassable knowledge of every climbing area, why not listen to what he's after...

Matty - if you are indeed a newbie climber (sometimes hard to tell on these forums), you'll probably want to get some experience up by leading low grade sport routes or climbing in a group with trad. Keep learning to lead indoors & go on day trips etc to get experience. Araps is pretty good for bouldering but the sport routes are mainly in the higher grades with a few exceptions. Summerday Valley at the Gramps (as someone else suggested) would be perfect for starters. You'll probably be looking for grades 10-17 to start off, but don't let me assume your ability.
