Wait, was John "Vermin" Sherman actually a brit??

The statement 'Also the threat of a ground fall, breaking something or death adds to the grade' doesn't make sense to me in terms of V grades, and the response seemed to refer to V grades. I can't really see what the peak district has to do with V grades, unless it's something to do with John Gill or someone? If he meant E grades, then it'd make much more sense.

As for whether 6c really does equate to 29... I'm certainly not going to argue with a Brit about that (though some brits seem to use French grades nowadays anyway).

Anyhow, my original point was that 'ground up' seems to infer that he's learning the climbs one move at a time, but I reckon he got a right spray of beta before he jumped on any of those.
