Hi All,

Im looking for any top rope routes in Cape Town. I am a beginner climber,
Are there any routes that have a anchor point that can be reached from the top of climb?

I have read that "crack of dawn" in lakeside is a top rope route, but cant seem to find out where the route is.

Cheers

A good place for that is Piers Cave or silvermine lower. Piers cave is easier to setup top ropes though.

But learn to lead asap :afro:

I wouldn't go anywhere else but Peers Cave if you are looking to top rope only. You can climb up the back part and then setup a top rope on a number of routes.

However, Wes is right, rather learn to lead, even if you are only beginning. Just start off on some really easy routes :thumright . Silvermine Lower is the best place for that.

If you do toprope, please put your own draws in the anchors and toprope on those, not on the anchors directly. :thumleft:
