Popular Climbing Areas

Oorlogs Kloof

There are several crags in Oorlogs Kloof with +/- 40 routes. There are also a number of trad routes. Most of the walls are north facing (best visited when the weather is cooler), but some are in gulleys and a few face south (all day shade). The routes vary from 8-30m long and from slabs to overhanging walls.


Harrismith is half-way (300km / 3 hrs drive) between Johannesburg and Durban. An excellent climbing area with good secure facilities and plenty of moderate and easy sport climbing and bouldering.


Montagu is in the Western Cape, South Africa, +/- 180 km (2 hours drive) from Cape Town. It is famous for it’s rock climbing and beautiful folded mountains.

Waterval Boven

Waterval Boven – ‘Boven (aka The Restaurant at the End of the Universe crags) – is arguably South Africa’s best sport climbing area.


Rocklands is 250km/3 hours north of Cape Town. It is a very beautiful area in a semi-desert setting, very isolated and very safe. Rocklands is undoubtedly famous for it’s world class bouldering but this should not deter you from sampling the fine sport climbing.
