Hoodspruit/strijdom tunnel?

Post by deSouzaFrank » Thu Dec 27, 2012 7:38 am

Does any one know if there are any routes, trad or sports, in the Hoedspruit area?

Lots of trad on the crags above the curio stalls, and across the river. It's called Manoutsa. No sport routes!

Hey thanks Richard. Are those curio shops you talk of, the ones just outside the tunnel? Where can I get a route guide?

Yes, above the tunnel. As Pierre says, the MCSA has copies of the RD. Some MCSA Journals also detail some of the routes. For other climbing in Hoedspruit area, apart from Blydepoort we have also done stuff on Mariepskop and Hebronberg area.
