Rock Climbing

Expert rock climbers from the Mountain Club of South Africa will teach you the basics of good rock climbing practice - the importance of balance, correct belaying techniques, abseiling, and the strict safety measures necessary.

Then under their leadership, experience the exhilaration of overcoming rock climbing problems with the world below your feet! First you will be taken up some simple rock pitches, and for those who have the aptitude and who wish to, a more difficult route on the Cederberg Tafelberg or the Spout. The well-weathered sound rock of the Cederberg is ideal for face climbing.

Note that the Climbing Leaders must be obeyed implicitly - your safety is in their capable hands.
