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.

Cape Nature: www.capenature.co.za

tel: 021 659 3500.

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.

Grade Route

I strongly recommend breaking this route in 2 pitches. The crux is a 23 traverse that is very far away from the anchor which leaves the second in a terrifying situation of rope pulling you in the wrong direction while performing the crux. Amazing route though. Traverses, cracks, roofs and vertical technical climb on the same route! Lots of fun! The crux is protected by bolts.

Fun route following an amazing crack line to a protected roof with jugs. Definetely worth doing it!
