Look, I get that it's hard mentally. Om man ni pad me hum. Or is that om man ni 12 pads me hum?

I make my decisions on what to climb based on a few things, including the grade and whether my legs/ankles are likely to snap (again). If you call a high crux V8 a V5, or similar, then you're just trying to get people hurt because they won't be able to physically manage the moves, and might fall and get hurt. Therefore grades matter. Call it unhealthy, call it number chasing, call yourself the next Buddha for all I care! It matters. People can see the height, but they can't necessarily see how hard the crux might be if they work ground up.

Going by what Dave J said - would you happily jump on a route that could be anything from 23 to 30? Don't lie, Buddha is watching.
