Topic - Grade voting: hard, easy. What's the point?

Greg Chapman - on 10 Apr 2013
I just wondered if anyone else found the option for voting climbs as 'hard' or 'easy' at a set grade as pointless as I do.

I use the info for when writing/updating guides (as I know Rockfax do) and surely this would be of far more use if people just voted for what grade they thought a climb was. Whether it is hard or easy yet still the same grade is just confussing and of no real use... other than perhaps as some minor ego boost or for those seeking out soft touches. I realise people discuss in forums or in person whether climbs are soft or hard at a given grade, but surely in the context of voting on something to find a consensus you need a more definitive system?
