Black Shadow, Rocklands

Tea Garden Closed to Climbers

Tea Garden has been closed to boulderers by the landowner. This is a recent development following the closure of the Black Shadow boulder to climbers after the boulder was the victim of substantial amounts of graffiti, a myriad of unofficial paths sprung up in the area and the farmer’s fence was broken down.

Culture of South African Alpinism

This is hopefully a small start to capture what South Africans are out doing in the world of Alpinism and winter climbing during the past season and hopefully will galvanise more people into this fantastic and exciting element of the climbing world.
