Blydepoort Access and route info

Post by dirktalma » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:43 am

I'm heading to Blydepoort this weekend and would love to go climb there. Can anyone point me to someone with some info regarding access and some routes there. Otherwise, if you could point meat some journal articles I would appreciate it.

I'm thinking of checking out the climbing at Strydom Tunnel. It looks amazing. Maybe even Goldrush.

Thanks

Strydom Tunnel is a.k.a Manoutsa
MCSA have quite a nice little paper guide with topos and maps
Andrew Porter put the pdf of that guide on this site a while back
Really easy to find, it's right next to the road

I've found the Blydepoort RD here: http://www.climb.co.za/topo/pdf/ClimbZA_Blydepoort.pdf However, it isn't listed in the wiki under Blydepoort. Or is it just my browser?

I saw the Manoutsa guide. Looks amazing. A really good route guide with excellent topos. Thanks
