Eastern Cape Rock Climbing

Week Night Training & Bouldering

There are some rock superstars, who just pull-it-out-of-the-bag, like a magic rabbit in a freaking hat. But for the rest of us we need to consistently train, train, train. Hard work, pain, fun…part of the package!

There are regular after-work training, boulder & climbing sessions in East London, Port Elizabeth & Grahamstown.

East London

  • In summer there are regular late afternoon proper roped climbing trips to NSA or Windmill Hole.
  • Garvin Jacobs is busy with an indoor woodie.

Port Elizabeth

  • Training nights are normally Tuesday & Wednesday.
  • Outdoor bouldering mostly takes place at The Lady’s Slipper, Prophets Cave, The Dungeon or Happy Valley, but there are a few alternative venues.
  • Indoor bouldering is at The Garage Wall. This is private, but there is normally a fair group that attends. Request access via info@easterncaperockclimbing.co.za

Grahamstown

  • Indoor bouldering at Rhodes University Wall. Contact the current RUMC climbing coordinator (start on FaceBook). Generally they are quite accommodating.
  • There is also regular bouldering at Crag X & sometimes The Bible Monument.
