Magaliesberg is a mountain range extending west and north from Pretoria to just south of Pilanesberg. Rock climbing in the Magaliesberg is mostly traditional climbing in deep kloofs or ravines in the northern slopes of the mountain. There are also crags on the southern escarpment. Due to the mild climate in the kloofs, the Magaliesberg offers excellent year-round climbing.

Access issues

All of the Magaliesberg is owned by private individuals. Access in the mountain is therefore sensitive. The Mountain Club of South Africa (MCSA) owns property in the Magaliesberg and provides access permits. Access to other crags are provided by their owners. Most of the MCSA property is accessed by crossing over neighbouring properties so it is always important to know and follow the access arrangements when you visit the area.

For more information on routes, access, and permits please see the following websites:
