Hello everyone! This is my first post in this website, so I'll probably mess a couple things up! I'm 15 and have been climbing for about 5 months 1-2 days a week. I am into the project realm of 5.12a on lead, but seem to only be able to boulder in the V2-3 range. Is this normal? Thanks in advance!

If your projecting 5.12a, you should, in theory, be projecting V4's as well.

Here is a break down of how Hueco grades roughly compare to Yosemite Decimal grades.

V0 = 5.10a
V1 = 5.10c
V2 = 5.11a
V3 = 5.11b
V4 = 5.12a
V5 = 5.12b
V6 = 5.12c
V7 = 5.13a
V8 = 5.13b
V9 = 5.13d
V10 = 5.14a
V11 = 5.14b
V12 = 5.14c

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
