the town of Vrede where a SPAR and other basic stores can be found. Hiking
trails and mountain biking can be done on the rest days.
Safety & Medical
The soft sandstone rock tends
to be quite soft and chunks can often break off. It is wise to use a helmet
for belaying, especially on newer routes or when opening routes. For serious
accidents please call the MCSA Rescue team on 011 315-0203.
There are just over 30
routes graded 12 to 29 or so. Route numbers are marked on the rock.
