Blyde River Canyon

Post by Ray » Fri Oct 30, 2009 11:15 am

I have just downlaoded the Blydepoort Route Guide for climbing in the Blyde River Canyon. How recent is this guide? Is anyone climbing here fairly regularly, and if so, how is the access/accommodation/safety?

Please let me know if you frequent this crag.

Quite a few routes have been opened since the guide was published. I think Lofty has an update, I'll email him to see if he can post it on the wiki. There are new routes at Loslyf and Ok Corral, plus two completely new crags (Taxi Crag and Eden). But the current guide has lots of good stuff.

Access: no problem for the campsite crags. A bit sensitive for the other areas, so rather stick to the campsite.

No safety issues that I know of. The campsite is well run.
