Access issues inherited from The Chosspile
Due to past safety issues, as of mid 2011 the following access arrangements were negotiated by the MCSA with Mount Amanzi, which has legal control of the land:
Only recognised climbing club members (MCSA, SANCF, or University) who have an up-to-date membership card, with a photo, are allowed to climb at the Chosspile.
Each club member is allowed a single guest.
Members and guests first report to Mount Amanzi’s reception (same side of the road, but across the river from the Chosspile) where they sign an indemnity and pay R30 per person. Climbers are then given a wrist band for the day, which identifies them to guards both at the parking area and the crags.
Although guards are paid R5 per guest, please feel free to supplement their earnings.
Note: Yearly passes are available.
