The guide seems to switch between using roman and Arabic grade numbers eg V+ and 5+

Is this just an inconsistency of is there some meaning like... ?

5+ = F5+ = sport and V+ = UIAA = not fully bolted

Cheers.

All the routes featured in the guidebook are fully bolted.

We've simply carried on using the grades given by the first ascentionists.

Below '6' some give French-style grades while others prefer to use the UIAA equivalent.

Thus 5a = V-, 5b = V and 5c = V+.
