Access issues inherited from Hellfire

The climbing is situated in the Limietberg reserve which is managed by Cape Nature. You MUST obtain a permit to climb at this area. Book permits by contacting their office in Rondebosch Cape Town and asking for a permit for the 'Hellfire trail' in the Limietberg reserve.

Permits can also be obtained at the Du Kloof resort (hotel) from the curio shop, useful if you decide to go on the spur of the moment and have not pre-booked permits.

Start below the recess on the far left side of the crag. Climb up the recess (not the best rock to get there) to the ledge. Climb the break on the left, to access the diagonal right tending crack to access a rail. Rail left to the layback feature, then up to the top.

On the lower band of rock, start on blocks a few meters left of the scramble up to 'Holey Smoke' Head leftwards and through a bulge to gain the upper right tending break. Climb the crack to top out.

Climb the crack to the top, A #3, #4 and #5 are very useful. Amazing finish! Amazing route.

Climb the easy looking off-width on the right of the crag. Two #'4s will reduce the terror factor.

FA: R. Suter & G. Hart, 2003

Starting on the lower band of rock on the right. Start below a red corner, climb up to this and to the top. It seems you can climb out left or right of the red corner.
