GUIDED ROCK CLIMBING SWARTBERG

ON THE GARDEN ROUTE

Climb South Africa’s very first climbing route, on Towerkop in the Swartberg mountains just north of the picturesque town of Ladismith in the Western Cape. Start off with a dramatic walk in rising above the agricultural landscape  to reach the base of the dramatic Towerkop cliffs. Set up camp at Nels’s cave and watch the sun set over the Klein Karoo as GoVertical prepares your dinner.

 

You can choose to climb for one or two full days with multiple Trad routes of varying grades to choose from. We are happy to guide, coach, teach or belay as you get to grips with the rock where the magic of Climbing started in South Africa.

 

Local legend has it that the iconic split in the peak of Towerkop (2198m) came about because of a witch in a fluster who struck the peak in two because it was in her way. Well thanks to her we’ve got some great climbing routes!

 

The full day walk out will leave you with just enough time get to quaint Barrydale or the home of the Port Festival Calitzdorp for a night of Karoo hospitality.

 

GoVertical provides all meals, gear guides & instruction. Suitable for climbers from beginners to more experienced climbers. Being adventurous is a definite requirement for this 3 or 4 day tour.  Email us for details

Rated as one of the world’s Top 10 Sport Climbing Hot spots, Montagu is a picturesque town nestled below the beautiful Langeberg Mountains in the Western Cape. Not only picture perfect, but you can expect blue skies as it’s on the edge of the Little Karoo and has fantastic weather for Rock climbing all year round.

 

There are over 450 bolted sport climbing routes to choose from with grades to suit every level of climber. The climbs are generally long  with superb multi-pitch climbs for those who don’t want the fun to end. If it’s Trad Climbing you’re into there’s plenty to choose from including legendary classics like Eagles Folly, a breath taking ascent of the Cogmans buttress.

 

Spend 4 days exploring this magnificent part of the Garden Route, Rock Climbing, hiking up the highest peak in the area, Bloupunt and of course the tour wouldn’t be complete without a day of soaking up the ambience of the many fine wine estates on the Worlds longest wine Route the R62.

 

GoVertical will guide you on the rock, up the mountain and through the wine estates.  Email us for details
