Morgan Bay

Morgan Bay, SOUTH AFRICA

Climbs 400 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 24m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Almost 400 established routes and huge new routing potential spread over various crags on five headlands looking over the Indian Ocean. The varied orientation of the crags and their elevation above sea level ensure there is always somewhere pleasant to climb. Although the overall height of the cliffs is up to 100m in places, there are broad ledges splitting up the cliffs which means the routes are generally around 20m or less in height, but also means accessing routes is usually a doddle.

NB: The grading system actually used is the South African system, which is similar to but not identical to the Australian system which I've had to grade the routes by for UKC database purposes - but the numbers I've used are actually the MCSA guidebook SA grades.

Access notes
This is pretty much roadside sea cliff cragging! You can park a car (if it's a 4x4, at least) on top of any of the headlands and reach your chosen climbing area within 5 minutes in most cases.
