|Area Name||Featured Image||Climbing Type||Description|
|Blouberg||Trad||Big wall trad climbing with many excellent routes of upto 12 pitches on good rock. A truly African setting worth the long drive to get there. Its best not to venture out here alone, you would certainly get lost.|
|Hanglip||image needed||Trad||Multi-pitch trad climbs, rock quality not excellent but in a good isolated setting.|
|Krantzberg||image needed||Trad||Good multi-pitch trad routes on good rock.|
|Makapansgat||Trad||En route to Polokwane and is an ideal weekend trip, or a handy alternative if you’re rained off Blouberg. Its an all-trad venue with a super easy walk-in, very exposed, wild and beautiful camping, deep pools, high waterfalls and easy-to-access cragging. There is lots of new route potential.|
|Ngopane (gaMashashane)||Multi-pitch Sport||Ngopane is a granite spire, nearly 100m in height, about 50 km to the north-east of Wellington's Dome, in the village of ga-Mashashane. The crag is in the middle of the village and the general reception there is friendly and chilled out. To date there are two routes up the Ngopane spire: one moderate three-pitch sport route to the summit with fantastic exposure and an easy 45m trad line almost half-way up the crag. There is also an easier scramble off the back of the crag from the top-out of the trad line.|
