This may be a hard question to answer , but I'm heading up to the Gunks for some bouldering in a few weeks and was wondering what folks thought of the problem ratings: Are they on the stiff side, about right, etc.? I only ask because I want to make the most of my trip and, as a relative novice, would hate to compile my problem wishlist and then find that a V? there is exponentially harder or easier than in other locales...

the ratings(at least V5 and below - never tried anything harder there) are fairly equivalent to hueco or horsetooth, though the problems feel very different. some problems are very height dependent - ie the gill egg will feel very hard if you are shorter than 5'4 or so.
