A select guide of the best trad Climbing on The Cape Peninsula.
There can be very few places on Earth where such a variety of world class climbing lies within the boundaries of a huge city. The entire Peninsula is dominated by the majestic Table Mountain chain that starts in the north with the impressive front faces of Table Mountain overlooking the bustling city of Cape Town, and runs south along the backbone across 60 kilometres of unspoiled mountain crags, culminating in the wild and beautiful Cape Point Reserve on the extreme southern tip.
Climbing anywhere on the Peninsula, you are always rewarded with stupendous mountain scenery and glorious sweeping views of the mighty oceans that surrounds the boney Table Mountain chain.
If you are looking for wild exposed climbing in a high mountain setting then The Ledge on Table Mountain is where you want to be. This is the showcase of trad climbing on the Peninsula and here you will find excellent climbing on bullet-hard sandstone that will rival routes anywhere in the world.
