Outstanding trad climbing on bullet hard Table Mountain sandstone.


Strictly trad climbing venue, no bolting is permitted. Mostly multi-pitch climbs. The routes tend to wander a bit, so twin ropes are recommended.

Access issues

If the cable car is your choice to reach the climbs I suggest pre-booking the cable car tickets online so you do not have to queue up for a ticket.


Either a 1-2 hour hike to the crags, or a Cable Car to the top and an absail or short hike down.

Where to stay

Cape Town has a huge range of accommodation to fit every budget. Area that are close to the crag include the City Bowl and the Atlantic Seaboard.


Strictly trad area, bolting is illegal.
