Summary

Bouldery, powerful routes

Description

Great crag for steep climbing on good holds.

Access issues

No access issues. Routes can get quite shlauky when the wind is blowing hard from the SE. Crag goes into the shade from about 09h00 in Summer and about 12h00 in Winter

Approach

Open all year round. No permits required to climb at the crag.

Where to stay

Drive up Ou Kaapse Weg from the Cape Town side and take the first turnoff to the left. The next turnoff to the right marks the start of the walk in, but don't park here, as there have been break ins. Rather drive on towards the naval base and park just before the boom entrance, on the left hand shoulder (-34.085289, 18.434387).

Look for a short path marked by cairns directly up the mountain to meet up with the jeep track (not along the fence). Walk along the jeep track to the hairpin bend in the road, where a footpath continues straight towards the crag.

Ethic

No camping at the crag
