Climbs 32 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features
Single and multi-pitch routes characterised by friction slabs and cracks on generally good quality granite. Approaches range from virtually roadside to several hours.

Both trad and bolted climbs exist. Some of the bolted routes have closely spaced bolts typical of sport climbs elsewhere - these tend to be the single pitch routes. Many of the multipitch bolted routes however are sportingly bolted, with long runouts and high first bolts making for some spicy climbing.

Grades are South African (equivalent to approx 1 grade lower in the Aussie system - i.e SA 13 = Aus 12.)

Approach notes
Access possible by normal (non 4x4) car but the roads are rough so progress may be slow in places.

Volunteer to moderate Pontoks
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
