Cable Way Crags

Cable Way Crags, near Hartebeesport dam, easy to moderate climbs within 45 minutes of Joburg and Pretoria! Pierre Carter and friends have put up about 15 climbs graded between 10 and 23. The crags are accessed from the top cable-car station, or by walking up from the bottom of the hill.

Universal Energy Theory

Jahne and Andrew’s Universal Energy Theory Grade ’28’, 5 Pitches – Rensbergkop (Swinburne), Free State Province, South Africa. A pretty spectacular and challenging five-pitch climb taking mostly excellent good rock all the way to the top of the 160 metre high cliff.


Eastern Cape Climbing

The Eastern Cape offers mostly single pitch climbing on either hard Dolerite or Sandstone/Quartzite. There are more than 700 sport routes, thousands of traditional routes & few bouldering areas (e.g. Alicedale). There is a lot of potential for new route development.
