  Panoramic Magaliesberg
TRIP DESCRIPTION
The start of the climb Spend the day climbing longer a route (several rope-lengths) in the Magaliesberg with a guide. Start off with a walk in down one of the kloofs the Magaliesberg hides so well, experiencing the tropical feeling. Swim in pools during lunch then, to round off the day, climb out of the kloof (about 90m deep at this point). The climb is 3 pitches (rope-lengths) of very easy grade climbing and can be done easily in hiking boots or running shoes.

We will provide all technical equipment, which includes:
  • Harness
  • Helmet
  • Ropes
  • Technical climbing equipment
Costs are inclusive of permits and lunch. However, permits can only be booked during week-day mornings, so please give adequate warning.

Winter and spring are the best seasons for climbing in the Magaliesberg - summer gets exceedingly hot and is often plagued by exceedingly violent summer thunderstorms, making afternoon climbing quite exciting in a less-than-pleasant sense. This is a GREAT trip for those who find themselves in or near Gauteng (Johannesburg / Pretoria) or staying at Sun City and have a day to spare. If you've planned your holiday and find that you have one day to spare then consider this as a time-filler.
