Join us with KZN and Mag sections for some awesome climbing and socials.

With over 700 bolted routes, Waterval Boven/ The Restaurant is South Africa’s prime sport climbing destination. There are numerous crags, all within an 8 kilometre radius of town, which cater for a range of levels – from beginner (grades 9-14) to expert (above 30).  Ease of access to most crags makes Boven an ideal destination for both adults and children. Although there are some quality traditional climbs, the area is known for its high concentration of excellent single pitch (between 12 – 35 metre) sport routes.

Grootkloof is a shady, attractive kloof with a running stream, clear pools and unique rock formations, including a huge suspended chock stone with trees growing on it straddling the whole kloof midway between Sonderbroek and Trumpet. The rock, which in places reaches 60 metres in height, is generally excellent, and the kloof has a good selection of climbs of all grades. Black Eagles nest from April to October so please avoid the following climbs during this period: New Era Crack, Lilliput Ridge and The Crystal Ship.
