Topic - How do Scottish winter and Alpine grades compare?

CharlieMack - on 08 Oct 2012
I remember reading an article somewhere on UKC saying something broadly like, if you can climb HVS then you can do grade IV and if you climb grade V fairly regularly then you can climb x in the Alps.

I was just wondering how Scottish and Alpine compared?

Clearly they are quite different, but i'm thinking along the lines of how hard, say a grade V would compare to the hard technical sections of an alpine route.

I've only done a handful of Scottish winter routes, but i'm possibly looking at a trip out early next year, after (fingers crossed) getting some more Scottish winter done this season.

So i'm basically wondering what grades i should be looking at for out there, and which i should be leaving well alone.
