I'm going to be up at Hilton this weekend. Thinking of climbing there for the first time.

What are the current arrangements for climbing at Hilton College? Do I just drive straight in?

I see from the KZN MCSA website that just Atom Smasher is open now.

Last time I was there it was possible to drive onto the Hilton College property. I don't know the current situation.

In my opinion Atom Smasher isn't the greatest crag (limited routes and morning shade only). Why don't you head out to Umgeni valley?

Didn't climb in the end - too hot in the afternoon as you said.

I think I'll try Umgeni valley next time I'm in the area.

Umgeni is a better venue, but Atom Smasher is worth a visit with some very good lines.
