Bouldering in SA

Postby bcn » Sat Nov 03, 2007 11:36 am

I am from Spain and bext week will visit Port Elisabeth (business trip). I will have also an extra holidays week, and I have planned to visit the Garden Route and 3/4 days n Cape Town.
I am thinking to carry my climbing shoes with me.
Any place for bouldering? Is it allowed to do it in Boulders Beach? What about boulders in this place?

Thanks a lot.

In Cape Town there are many good bouldering areas:
You'll need a car though or, best, if you can hook up a guide to show you around:

Out of the city:
Topside: 15min drive from city - biggest area and best!
Redhill: 30min drive from city - concentrated but far to travel!

In the city:
TDA: A group of boulders with no walk-in, near Newland Forest
CBD: Small area on Table Mountain near Cable car
Llundudno: Next to beach, cool spot for an afternoon
