Climbing gyms in Middle Earth

Post by JanWilKlim » Sun Nov 15, 2015 1:13 pm

Howzit ouens

I have asked Dr Google and all I can find wrt to climbing gyms in GP is CityRock, Wonderwall and The Barn. Is there anything in between those in the Centurion area perhaps that I missed?

Hi

There are no proper climbing gyms that I'm aware off other than the ones you mentioned, perhaps a small private wall or two in backyards and garages unknown. I have two 3 panel bouldering walls, access to which we can talk about if you can keep your shirt on and leave the lube at home :pirat:

Oh, and I forgot about the wall at LC de Villiers, but then you need to be one of those joiner types.

Almost been a year now since this question was last asked. I don't suppose anything has changed in terms of somewhere in Centurion to train?

I guess it sort of depends on your idea of "train"?

Many stone walls around to traverse.

But no, not much in the line of a new commercial gym that I'm aware of, except the boulder cave in Silverton, but coming from Centurion you might as well then go to JHB.

Thanks for the update Emile! :thumright
Pity the unofficial cave in West street closed down.

I have a boulder Cave in Benoni - Not sure if that is too far still.
