Nearly ... it's actually 4.8 metres vertical per 100 metres along the road (not horizontal) - almost the same at small percentages, but the difference gets significant over 15% ... For reference, 4.8% is pleasant climbing on a bike, 10% is not, 15% is ugly and is about as much as most people can climb on a conventional road bike without falling off.

Dalai, you should include Bluestone in your guide - even it is only the main walls of Richmond, Heidelberg Road and maybe the Highpoint one, listing a couple of eliminates. The fact that it's not natural is immaterial - the reality is that for many it forms a significant part of non-gym climbing.
