The Mine

Climbs 60 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 196m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
A steep pumpy crag with routes of 5 to 25 meters. Smooth hard sand stone (quartzite). The crag can get very 'schlauky' when the South Easter blows. Its a good place to climb when it rains.

UKC only uses the Aussie grading system. Altough simliar to the SA system it is slighly different. eg: a 24(6c+/7a) in SA is 23 in Aus/NZ. I have used the accurate french grades that were taken from Guy Holwill's 'Western Cape Crags' and put the SA grade in the route info section.

Access notes
Follow the dirt track keeping right at the fork until you reach the obvious hairpin bend after about 20 minutes. From here follow the path up to the crag
