Topic - Guppy Arete / Classic Arete - Burbage South Edge

Trying to figure out this problem:

BMC BMandB guide has Guppy Arete at V2 5c and V6 with a sit-down.

VB PDB has it as Classic Arete and 7A (V6)

PDB has it as a 6C maybe a 7A+ since there are 2 variations described here - http://peakbouldering.info/areas/1-eastern-grit/crags/8-burbage-south-edge/boulders/203-the-alliance...
There is also a video of someone doing it and making it look more V6 than V2, and not starting with a sit-down.

UKC Logbooks has Guppy Arete (V2), Guppy Sit-down (V6) and Classic Arete (7A+) recorded, all with ticks.

I tried it this afternoon and it certainly felt a lot harder than V2, but I am puzzled why it has ticks without comments at that grade.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Alan
