Ice/Snow Rating Bugs?

In the comments for Leuthold Couloir on Hood, it states:

AI1 does not apply to this route, but unfortunately cannot be removed from the rating due to MP's funky system for rating these types of routes.

What's up with this rating weirdness?  There are other routes on the same mountain and other peaks that have snow ratings without a meaningless ice rating tacked on.

Additional weirdness: An adjacent route (Reid Headwall) has a snow and ice rating, but if I try to enter a grade it only shows ice ratings, and won't let me pick a snow grade.  In the route ticks, it looks like other people have been able to pick snow grades.

Same thing on DKH, I can only give it an ice grade, but others have given it ice and snow grades?

Some bugs in the grading system for snow/ice routes, maybe?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
