Description:

Climb the blocks to the right until level with the second bolt on Vampire direct. After leaning across to clip, traverse left to the bolt line which is then followed straight up with sustained climbing. The crux is a powerful lock-off on an undercling. A positive ape index and fancy footwork help in the crux section.

Ethic: inherited from Kloof Gorge

Kloof is home to animals and therefore general crag rules apply such as no littering, loud conservative noise, etc. please do not feed the animals if you happen to see any. Kloof is mainly sport climbing and as such, bolting is allowed. However there are some crags that are considered to be mainly for trad climbing and as such it's generally accepted to not bolt there however it is still permitted and you won't be punished.
