Spitzkoppe

Spitzkoppe, NAMIBIA

Climbs 65 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features
Single and multi-pitch routes characterised by friction slabs and cracks on generally excellent quality granite in a spectacular setting. 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.)

Access notes
Accessible by normal vehicle.
