what's the use of having a grading system if everyone gets to interpret it on an individual basis?
So, we have variable X, which is any Human, and we have variable Y, which is terrain. How X interacts with Y is defined by an expression that is unknown. Solve for Z which is the YDS Grade.
x (?) y = z
The fact that a Grading system exists at all is amazing. But due to the huge amount of probable scenarios it has to be accepted that there is always going to be flux in how the difficulty of a given feature of terrain is perceived.
