The crags  
The guide leading ahead The Magaliesberg rock is ideally suited to climbing. This stuff is extremely hard and provides good protection, too. If you just want to experience rock climbing without too must stress, join us fr a day out in the kloofs, climbing easy routes. The upper Tonquani complex contains many routes of easy grade, some of which are ideally suited to larger groups and some better suited to smaller ones.

We'll start off with a warm up route - probably something like Left Corner or Kitchen Corner just to get everyone thinking along the same lines. After that we can move on to Donkerhoek Recess or Right Corner Crag, depending on the group's desires and abilities.

All of these routes are 2-3 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
Donkerhoek Recess Costs are inclusive of permits and lunch. However, permits can only be booked dring 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.
