Summary

Wolfberg offers a range of traditional climbing as well as a few hard sport routes.

Description

Whilst a handful of bolted/mixed routes exist on the SE Wall and in Gaper Crack, please note that bolting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! The area is on private land and the owners do not want any bolts placed in the rock, this includes abseil stations.

As a result, all rapp points are off natural features and should be backed up with new ab tat, as the sun damages and weakens the existing tat. Most of the abseil points have a maillon or biner to help facilitate your descent.

The routes that do have bolts were placed a very long time ago and have never been replaced. Use them at your own discretion.

Access issues

You will have to obtain a permit to climb at Wolfberg, as it is on private land. Ask for more details at the reception for Sanddrif (https://www.sanddrif.com/)

Approach

Park at the designated area and follow the path up the mountain, which leads to Wolfberg Cracks. It takes about 30 to 45mins to reach the start of the SW Wall, SE Wall and Energy Crisis Prow. The climbs in Gaper Crack and Cyclops Wall take a bit longer to reach (approximately 1hr from parking area).

Ethic

No bolting allowed. Strictly a trad area.
