Credibility Problem

Nearly ever single Nick Sagar line has been downgraded over the years. Two grades on average, but ocassionally 3. As a guidebook author, this has been very frusturating since fixing this massive inconsistency results in bruised egos and community backlash when people's accomplishments get impacted.

This is in stark contrast to Zig's testpeices which have stood the test of time (and then some). Compared to the most recent Zig V9 I've done (Dilemma)Mr. Sanders V9 V6 is an Acorn StairliftTM. Hell, forget V9, it's true compared to the most recent Zig V7 (Dirty Job). I onsighted Mr. Sanders and then ran laps with different variations trying to make it remotely difficult. Nope, just another Sagar tripple downgrade.

I have the utmost respect for Nick's incredible vision as a developer and priceless contribution to the Nova Scotia bouldering, but his grading standard was fucked.
