Yes it does seem to be open. The bottom gate is closed but if you drive to the top of the road and take a right at the parabats. The access is not to bad.

Until further notice all climbing at the Radioactive Crags at Pelindaba has been banned. Contact Robert Cromarty (082-445 6559) for further information.

Where is this radioactive crag, and any change regarding the access arrangements (or lack thereof)

Hey sir,

RadioActive was some nice climbing along the Crocodile river. Driving down Maibongwe (the artist formerly known as Hans Strijdom) Drive towards Harties, you'll see some rocky bits on the right around the river (a few kms before you get to the T-junction). The crag is somewhere around that area, on NECSA property.

Rory Lowther and Andrew Porter's little book Crags of Gauteng has directions and so forth. If you find out anything...thanks!

I've been there a few times in recent months and there has been no issue. There is a guy at the main gate the charge is about R70 or R75 per person so bit steep but otherwise everything is good. If you know how to get to the crag great I'd not rely on the gate keeper to explain this to you. Just say you are going climbing he says hiking when we tell him this. Not sure if it is a language barrier or not , either way we made it clear what we were there for and I've climbed with no incidence about 3 times recently (not in the last month though)
