Climbing near Somerset-West or Stellenbosch

Postby ironclimb » Thu Feb 07, 2013 3:18 pm

Hi,

I'm from Centurion and Heading down to the cape soon :thumright. I was wondering whether there are some crags in or around Somerset west or Stellenbosch?

I had a look at the map on Routes page for Western Cape, but it doesn't look like there are any crags nearby there :|

Thanks in advance,
Niels

:lol:

to add a bit to Justin's eloquence, the closest would be Paarl Rock, Kleimond and Silvermine. All excellent!

awe, oi!

Paarl is close, CT is ~60min drive and if you trad, then Jonkershoek, Du Toits, Duiwelskloof, Donkerkloof etc
Happy climbing
Nic

Thanks guys. Nic, Paarl looks like mostly trad on the route wiki, are there a handful of sport routes as well?
