Burglary Outside silvermine

Post by janeruth » Fri Aug 28, 2009 9:55 pm


Just a warning alas, because I didn't think this was a dodgy area. After a days climbing elsewhere we parked outside the Tokia side Silvermine gate on ou Kaaps se weg, after hours but while still light. Coming back an hour later, the car door was bent off, alarm disabled and a couple grands worth of climbing gear swiped :/

Our own silliness to have left it there in the 1st place but just a head up for anyone else naive as me to think that area was safe-ish.

I'm afraid that parking outside either of the Silvermine gates has been very risky for a long time. Unfortunately inside is also not completely safe at all times.
