Can anyone please give me some insight as to whether there is any climbing in or around Clarence in the Free State.

Nothing I know of in Clarens, but there are a few bolted routes just outside Ficksburg (I know of 2, have heard of others). Climbed there once 10 years ago and sadly have no clue who you'd need to get in touch with to gain access today. Maybe someone else here can help out

Also a few bolted routes in Bethlehem (again, know of two, heard of more but never found them). Routes are in the kloof/nature reserve just higher up from the bird sanctuary. It's about a 10 minute walk in from the nearest entry point.
