This area of easy and moderate climbs has been developed by Pierre Carter and friends. It is a convenient distance from Joburg and Pretoria. At the time of writing, there are not too many climbs open yet but there is lots of potential at the bottom and further East along the ridge. The rock is fairly shattered / and lose in places but will improve with traffic. Wear helmets and be careful!

All bolts were kindly supplied by the MCSA Johannesburg and Magaliesberg Sections. If you are climbing on them, you should really become a member in support of their continuing efforts to develop and protect our crags.
