Not sure if anyone at UKC has the Font or V grades for this area, but the 'sport' grades that were bizarrely used for this area are incorrect and obviously quite out of date. For example the Basse Tension is given F7c but is actually font 7B+, quite a difference. The local bouldering guide has more modern bouldering grades, though was put together without much thought for the grading, first ascentionists etc., so much of the info. is out of whack. Still, better than using sport grades.|
