Very nice multi-pitch tradding in a big amphitheatre


The climbing is on good sandstone, although it can be loose in certain places (bottom left hand corner in particular (take your brain bucket along for amphitheatre routes). There are only 2 sport routes (a short 24 and a 26) and more than 50 trad routes of good quality and the scenery around you is quite tranquil.

Access issues

The climbing is located on a farm called Bergplaas in the Karoo.


From Cape Town, get onto the N1 towards Paarl, go over the Du Toits Kloof pass or through the tunnel. Stay on the N1 past Worcester, past De Doorns, up the Hex river pass and when you see a right hand turn to Montagu, you turn left into the Karoo1 Hotel and Village. Stop off at reception and declare your arrival!

Where to stay

On site, upmarket accomodation and restaurant.
