PERMITS TO VISIT THE MAGALIESBERG
The MCSA (specifically the Johannesburg and Magaliesberg Sections) owns and manages several of the kloofs in the Magaliesberg. Access to these kloofs is limited for reasons of conservation.  Up to 20 persons per day can visit a kloof via a permit system (depending on which kloof). A fee of R15 per person per day is charged which goes towards conservation work on the properties. No facilities are provided.

HELP KEEP OUR ACCESS OPEN
A great deal of work is done by the MCSA to keep access to climbing areas open, please support them and help them in this goal. We are seeing many climbing areas overseas losing access, so all the support you can give the MCSA will help avoid the same happening locally.

Please contact the MCSA before visiting unknown climbing areas which might be sensitive to access, very often negotions are in progress and your visiting the area can upset them or even close the access. Always keep quiet at climbing areas, never litter, preserve the fauna and flora, do your ablutions far from rivers and bury them thoroughly. Remember that fires are usually prohibited in most areas, please respect this and other access conditions the owners may have set.

Above all remember that many of the properties you climb on are privately owned and upsetting the owner (which has proved to be very easy) often causes them to close access.
