Can't Post

After climbing in the Lower Susquehanna Valley along the river I have found that many of the grades seem as if the grades posted here are higher than they actually are. For instance, a 5.11 at Sex Wall (one of the north facing overhanging routes) seemed like a 5.9, while others seemed totally backwards where a 5.9 was much easier than a 5.8 that was right next to it Who's rating these things? I know that it is not a science but is there some benefit from totally botching the rates? Another thing that I'm wondering, is PA climbing like PA snowskiing in that Black Diamonds here are actually easy Blue Squares in Colorado?
