CBD City Bouldering District Cape Town

The area is access sensitive!

Almost all the paths are well established or wide jeep tracks (Deer Park areas), except for The Terraces which is badly overgrown, and High Lights boulders which need cairns but walk-in is on good boulder hopping. Most problems are close to the main paths.

Leave absolutely no trace. All vegetation is ‘fynbos’ and protected. Climbing access throughout Table Mountain National Park is always a negotiated balance and can be undone anytime.

Keep your dogs under control - Schadenfreude and various Deer Park boulders for example are on the mountain biker's jeep track and dogs can get territorial once settled.

Sunset is a magic time; sun goes down over the neck toward Camps Bay and it is still light enough in summer to climb until 8pm making after work sessions quite viable; with the city lights below.

Even when windy and the Table Mountain ‘Table Cloth’ clouds pour over the mountain it can be surprisingly sheltered as the wind goes over the top before hitting Vredehoek and Oranjezicht; I’ve had some of the best evenings with no-one on the mountain because of apparent wind below but it’s been perfect on the foothills.

Oh and don’t stand on snakes. They’re probably poisonous puffadders or cape cobras. Look before you step. If you do phone (0861) 555-777 Tygerberg Poison Care Unit or / and (083) 244-5194 and try provide a description of the snake.
