I'm sure most climbers experience some disparity in their lead grade when moving from wall climbing, to overhanging ground to slabs or from balancy/technical to thuggy/thrutchy for example.
Just noticing that the disparity in my own lead grade seems to be getting ever wider: on steep ground only reliable at VS 4c with a reasonable success rate at HVS 5a, on slabs pretty smooth on E1 5b with a good chance of pulling off 5c moves.
Anyone else have a similar issue (or the reverse). Suggestions to redress the balance in my grades are welcome too, it's not that I avoid steep climbing (having done lots at Swanage) so not just "climb more steep stuff" please!
