Australian Rock Climbing Grades Chart

Australian climbers like to keep it simple, and thanks to a former Brit, we have one of the most straight-forward climbing grade systems in the world, invented in the 60's by John Ewbank,.

Running from 1 to 35, the Ewbank climbing grade system uses one number to represent the technical difficulty, exposure, length, quality of rock, protection and any additional factors that contribute to the difficulty of a route. See the tables below to see what the numbers mean, with international rock climbing grades comparisons ranging from novice to super elite!
