Goldrush Bouldering

Does anyone know the access status to goldrush bouldering?

Goldrush and the surrounding regions have great rocklands style bouldering. Great potential, especially blocks harder than 7C+.

Hi Don

Gold Rush is still open, and yes has great bouldering in a stunning setting. You need to contact York Timbers first to get a permit, please do not just go there. Richard Benne has been going regularly and he will have more detail.

Thanks Neil

Keen for regular trips there. For interest sake- it would make a cool school league finals venue, if only locally- plenty of scope

Cheers

Hi Gregga,
The broken link is our fault not Neil's - we've been meddling with the site :cheese:
Richard B is back in the Western Cape.
Will endeavor to get the link sorted by Monday - PM me if it's urgent.
