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.
Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.
