Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.

Summary

Downstream on the true left of the stream.

Description

Care with rope management, drag, sharp edges, top-roping and pendulums – so that’s about everything, really! There are at least three lines to the left as you ascend the ramp. They are essentially highball boulder problems which will probably be bolted due to the very bad landing. There are anchors. Please take care with top-roping here so as not to swing out and send passers-by to their doom!

Access issues inherited from King's Kloof

On arrival at the security gate, state that you are going climbing. The guard will then ask you to fill in the register/indemnity and pay R30 per person. Otherwise please book in with Derek Schneider, the manager of the Rocky Valley camp (083 326 8618). He lives in the house on the left nearest the bridge.
