All climbs are on the North-East face, making this an ideal sunny venue for winter climbing (or shoulder seasons). All routes described from right to left.
A permit is required (available from the Dwarsrivier Reception).
The most direct approach is from Dwarsrivier Farm. It takes approximately 1hr of hiking to reach the vlakte at the foot of The Pup. Another 20mins or so up the slope to reach the start of the climbs.
Trad venue. No bolting permitted. Pack out what you pack in.
The Pup was first climbed in 1959, and only really saw further development in 1990.
