The Cederberg Mountain Range (read wikipedia)is a wilderness mountain range home to some of the finest single & multi-pitch climbing in South Africa. The summits top 2000m above sea level and the climbing is found on most aspects. This gives ideal locations to hide from the summer heat by hiking to elevation and then climbing on the shady faces or, in winter to climb in the sun at lower elevations. The climbing is on featured sandstone set on the Western edge of The Koue Bokkeveld - if you are looking for a feeling of wide open space, The Cederberg will give you that - just look at the Gallery (all photo's in the gallery were taken during guided climbs, and none are proffessionally 'posed').

Being 250km from Cape Town, this is at least a 2-day trip. A variety of options exist to cater for all skill levels and most weather conditions. Generally the options are:

  • One day Sport Climbing + one day multi-pitch trad climbing with campsite camping or cabins
  • One day Sport Climbing + 2 days multi-pitch trad climbing sleeping 2 nights in natural caves! This option requires a high level of hiking fitness as the hiking to the caves is strenuous and requires us to carry ALL our equipment - sleeping, cooking (plus food), climbing equipment - 4-5 hours. As this is at altitude (2000m asl) this is NOT a winter option. Note: this option is not suitable for kids. Being a ways from any amenities, full hiking and climbing gear (good selection of clothing and food/water) needs to be carried to as well as UP the route.

Both of the above can accomodate begginers, intermediates, kids and adults alike. If you don't believe us about it being wild, look at the image in the gallery of the night sky taken by a client on a moonless evening!
