Higgovale Quarry is now being visited nearly DAILY by at least 5 climbers if it's good weather. Many locals and many foreigners climb here.
The Belay-Bunkie group shows up many times at the Higgovale quarry.
After the big fire we had (which started all the way in Camps Bay), the Quarry somehow smells a lot better. (But that's probably cause I like the smell of fire).
Thanks to all neighbours and helpers who helped stop the raging fire.
It's got the following grades from the far left (west): 14, 16, 18, 24, diagonally across:21/22***, then there is another 8 routes to climb which range from grade 14 to 18 I should guess, but they are the shorter ones.
Many clubs do their training here, esp rescue training, abseling etc, sometimes even stunt-movies get shot here.
It is excellent for beginners and if you have forgotten your climbing shoes, you can still easily set up a top rope and climb!
You can email me to find out how to join the Belay-Bunkie mailing group (organised by my brother): email@example.com
We do things like rapp-jumping down the Civic Centre, Abseiling and other hectic events.
