Summary

A recently established sport climbing cliff that is reachable by hike from the Sabache camping area. Sure to become a popular desination.

Description

The routes here are mostly overbolted, making them an excellent choice for a budding sport leader. They are tall with many of the routes requiring at least a 50 meter rope.

Access issues

Baboons do frequent the cliff (surprise) so give them the space needed.

Approach

From the Sabache camp, hike toward A2 for 10 minutes until a trail with a painted sign is found on the left. From here it's a 5-minute walk to the cliff.

Where to stay

Sabache Camp.

Ethic

Do not continue the tradition started of painting on the rock.

Grade Route

Named in honour of the black scorpion hiding behind a big flake pulled off the route. Fun, varied vertical climbing with a sting in its tail! On the big rock perpendicular to Baboon Cliff proper.
