Sport Climbing near Matroosberg Nature Reserve

Post by Overide » Wed Jun 27, 2018 12:56 pm

Good afternoon,

Does anyone perhaps know of some sport climbing to be had near Matroosberg Nature Reserve?

We are heading through there for the weekend I contacted the people at Houdenbek and they do not allow day visitors at there farm.

Anywhere within an hours ride should be reachable. Open to other suggestions though. (Or if anyone knows of any bouldering out that side)

Regards,
Richard

Non, the closest would be Houdenbek
Otherwise, you could possibly belay off the rescue bolts near the top ?? :pirat:

Bouldering at Witzenberg would work:

Perhaps someone can help with a pin to the parking / walk-in ?
