where to boulder with kids

Post by kbibeau » Sun Jul 01, 2018 6:25 pm

Hi, visiting family in sunny SA in January and looking for a great spot to boulder with a 10 and 12 years old who are not afraid to walk to places. Will be spending time in the Transkei (Kei Mouth area) for a few days and free after that. Trail running and mountain biking as a extra. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi Karine

If you are intending to travel towards Cape Town, the closest bouldering venue to Wild Coast is outside Stutterheim http://www.easterncaperockclimbing.co.z ... k-climbing . The boulders are in a shady forrest, but its gonna be super hot & humid in Jan.

Alicedale http://www.easterncaperockclimbing.co.z ... bouldering is the next closest, but Jan is going to be a bit miserable with heat. Perhaps if you start at 4am & take a break at 10am.

Cape St Francis http://www.easterncaperockclimbing.co.z ... st-francis is an option. Beach, swimming & sea breeze will help. St Francis Brewery is super. Their Wildside draft is fantastic.
