The bouldering V Scale is a grading system used to classify the difficulty of bouldering routes or problems. The scale ranges from V0 to V17, with V0 being the easiest and V17 being the most difficult. The grades are determined by a combination of factors, including the height of the boulder, the number of moves required to complete the route, the type of holds and techniques used, and the level of body tension or power needed to complete the route.

To determine the grade of a boulder route, climbers will typically assess the route based on these factors and assign a grade based on their experience and skill level. The V Scale is a relative grading system, meaning that the difficulty of a route can vary depending on the individual climber's abilities and style. As a result, the V Scale is not an exact measure of difficulty and should be used as a general guide rather than a definitive measure of a route's difficulty.
