Summary

Boulders on the Steenberg side of the Silvermine nature reserve.

Description

Two boulders directly next to the path to Steenberg Peak.

Access issues

Silvermine is part of the Table Mountain National Park. As such, parking at Gate 2 is controlled by SAN parks. For up-to-date details on access, one should check their website.

Approach

From the parking at Silvermine Gate 2 walk along the gravel track until you reach the path and accompanying sign for Steenberg Peak. Follow this path for approximately 200m to a fork. Follow the sign for Steenberg Peak to the right. A further 50m down this path you will see the boulders on your right hand side.

History

History timeline chart

The boulders here (in particular "The Silvermine Boulder"), have seen climbing since the days when bouldering was not a set discipline and crash pads didn't exist. As such, the information on the original route names and first ascents is not available. In there place simple alphabetical labels have been used to identify routes.
