New routes at Sanddrif

Post by crigs »

I was climbing at Sanddrif crag recently and tried the two new routes between Rooi Haaksteene and Finding Nemo (Western Cape Sport Guide). Anyone know the names and grades of the new routes? Thanks!

Chat to Tony Lourens and Paddy McCann.
I believe the routes belong to them

As far as I know, the right-hand route is Patric McCanns (24)
Patric is looking for grade confirmation so please send him some feedback.

Hi Malcolm, I wouldn't grade that route 24, as it definitely feels easier than Rooi Haaksteene. If I had to add my two cents, I would say hard 22 or easy 23.

Hi guys,

A bit of a thread hi jack.
But I was wondering if anyone has info on some routes in the actual campsite?
As you drive in, cross the bridge there is a small rock face directly in front of you with a couple a newly bolted routes.

Heading through to the campsite in a few weeks time so will like to check them out but cant find any info on them.

Cheers
Rob.

They've been there for several years. All pretty easy and make a great kids cragging spot. Don't recall grades but 14 or easier for sure

You can ask at the office, they might have an RD. They were bolted by Tony Lourens as far as I know. They're all very easy, less than 16 if I recall correctly.
Happy climbing
Nic
