Mpumalanga


This is arguably one of our most beautiful provinces which includes South Africa’s best sport climbing area, ‘Boven (aka The Restaurant at the End of the Universe crags). These crags attract year round international visitors ever since articles were published in 1993 in the German magazine Rotpunkt as well as in other media. It has become famous for its good selection of great quality routes (over 700 of them!) of all grades that are easily accessible. Various traditional climbing areas, not too far from the Restaurant offers quality multi-pitch trad climbing but the real gems are to be found in the bouldering areas of Kaapsche Hoop and Goldrush. Overall this province has a large amount of under developed rock.
