G uided Rock Climbing and Hiking is our trademark speciality. Table Mountain Climbing is a very unique experience with breathtaking views and solid rock. Suitable for complete beginners and experienced people alike, 40% of our clients have never climbed outdoors before climbing on Table Mountain! 
Hiking in Cape Town has become ever more popular with most of our trips ascending the India Venster, Kloof Corner and Platteklip routes, the longer and quieter routes on The Twelve Apostles are soughtafter for their tranquility. 
Despite being only 3hrs from Cape Town, The Cederberg Climbing is more remote and offers a semi-desert feel akin to Utah. Cederberg Rock Climbing has been described as other-worldly: monolythic Sandstone Messa's with easy access and consistent weather! The hiking and trekking in The Cederberg is equally enthralling - a dry, warm and spacious venue with spectacular scenery. 
For the more experienced there is accessible yet remote-feeling Alpine Country Routes less than 2hrs from Cape Town. Du Toits Kloof Climbing is typically Alpine - suspect rock quality on occasion, difficult retreat options and full-day outings in Big Country. 
Vertigo Adventures have, also, handcrafted Climbing and Hiking tours from 5-10 days, encapsulating the best of the area. Contact Us for more information.

Table Mountain Hikes are often very misleading. This is because there is no way to avoid the fact that there is nearly a 1000m / 3000ft height gain. Most people who go regularly to the gym would consider themselves fit, however few are physically or mentally accustomed to climbing a 250 story building. Add the summer sun and suddenly an easy hike can become quite demanding.
