|The grade range of the 140 sport routes is 8-28, while the multi pitch bolted lines range from 11-28. Most of the routes are in the beginner/ intermediate range, making Mount Everest an ideal destination for less experienced climbers. In addition there are excellent traditional lines but the rock is soft, so one must make sure of gear placements. The 120 odd boulder problems vary from easy (3) to very hard (7C). Currently there is no route guide for the boulder problems. Similar to Swinburne, the rock is relatively soft and friable, with a good possibility of holds breaking off. Wearing of helmets, especially for belayers and people at the base, is highly advisable.
