Cape Vertical is Jeremy Samson’s selection of classic rock climbs in the Cape. It’s in no way an route guide, rather he explains what makes a classic rock climb. A great amount of South African climbing history is included covering the areas, routes, pioneers, traddies and trigger happy bolters that were doing their thing at the time.
