General Info

CBD 'The Terrace' Boulders are on the slopes of Table mountain just above Tafelberg Road. It's ideal for having an after work session and enjoying a variety of good problems in the lower grade range. Slightly higher than Bright lights so better views. The walk-in is very short and the path is good.
