Description

On either side of the drip.

Access issues inherited from Tafelberg

A permit is required: www.capenature.co.za

Ethic inherited from Tafelberg

Tafelberg is a pure trad area. No bolting is allowed at all.

There is an existing bolt and chain at the top of the ascent/descent gulley and (to my knowledge) only one old route (Oscillation) that has an ancient, hand drilled, small bolt. This in no way means that any more bolts may be placed. There are also a few old pitons scattered around but even this is seldom necessary. Modern removable gear allows virtually all climbable parts of Tafelberg to be adequately protected.

Start on a large block right behind the water point. Jump for a good rail and then follow the crack system up and through two recesses on the left. Rap from a nut/chock anchor (<30m) at the good rail where the rock (quality) above deteriorates.
