The General Committee of the Mountain Club of South Africa (Cape Town Section) regrets to advise members of the increasing possible threats to their personal safety while hiking and climbing in and around the Table Mountain National Park, and elsewhere.
We regrettably have to inform you that the MCSA’s access through the Mountain Sanctuary Park (MSP) office and their rest-camp has been terminated.
Please note that the perception with respect to activity permits for trad climbing in Table Mountain National Park is NOT correct.
Without any consultation with the MCSA or climbers, the park has unilaterally decided to include all trad climbing as an activity requiring a permit.
Please see the below latest news that the MCSA Rock Climbing Committee is working on and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any suggestions, information or offers to assist us with any of the below items.
The MCSA have released a letter to outline the current rules regarding rock climbing and activity permit use within the Table Mountain National Park.
