The crux of this problem could be either holding the swing/not dabbing on the boulder directly behind you when doing the last move to the good jug just below the lip. The bottom moves are quite difficult and very tricky to decipher the easiest sequence. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

How can something be graded "V4-V7?" That seems like an awfully wide range....just sayin.

i assume you are referring to Eric Scully - V4 (V4-V7)? i think that the wide grade range arises due to the fact that this problem is somewhat height dependent. If you are tall enough you can get a great heel toe cam in the start hold and keep it till you reach the lip. If you're shorter you really have to crank on the incut flake crimps. still, i agree it is a wide grade range...

If you read the intro to the guide it explains the shorthand used in the name block for the problem. (V4-V7) is the reported range of grades, while V4 is the consensus. That information is included for historical reasons, it's interesting to see how some problems are all reported the same grade and some vary wildly. One problem is V1 (V1-V9) but it's an inside joke :-).
