I generally use the one on wikipedia. It isnt always accurate but considering that grading across the country differs immensely, this is probably the best you are going to get,

Use the one in the Waterval Boven guide
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...

What about this one? http://www.climbing.co.za/sa-climbing-b ... mparisons/
Interesting how big the difference is, eg Ozzy 16 could be anything between SA 16 and 19 :shock:

In my experience of climbing in Oz and NZ, the grades felt pretty much exactly in line with SA grades, maybe +/- a grade at most.
