Sports climbing near PE?

Post by ChadRossouw » Mon Sep 24, 2018 1:44 pm

Any thoughts and suggestions welcome. I’m going to be in PE in December and want to do some sports climbing nearby. Something family friendly (no crazy walk-ins), with easy to moderate climbs.

(I did look through the wiki but looking for some good advice)

http://www.easterncaperockclimbing.co.za Check this out Chad.

I haven't climbed there in a while but I can recommend the lady slipper/ van stadens area. The Falcon Rock boulder in the Lady slipper area probably best describes what you're looking for. Routes are pretty short though. But there is a lot in the area. Enjoy.

There is quite a bit of sport in PE area these days (>380 routes), but not many crags that meet the "family friendly (no crazy walk-ins), with easy to moderate climbs" spec. Most have a bit of a walk-in, some element of danger to kids or are a bit short.

These are those that meet the spec:
