I thought it was grade 10, but the ACA website says 11:

May I suggest a scientific approach to grading climbs. I wore a friend's heart rate monitor at Morialta on
Saturday for fun and he sent through the rate vs. time graphs, which got me thinking. If we assume that
physical effort and exposure (generating anxiety) is reflected in your heart rate, then a combination of the
peak rate, the area-under-the-curve and perhaps other parameters could give a value (x) corresponding to
a grade (g). A number of benchmark climbs (by consensus) would be onsighted (eg. D Minor for g = 15,
Kachoong for g = 21, Trojan for g = 25, etc) to generate a curve of x vs. g. New climbs or climbs of
debatable grade would be onsighted, x calculated and g read off the graph.

Using an approach such as this, I wouldn't be surprised if Agamemnon was proven to be a sandbag
compared to other grade 10's given the exposure factor!
