Cockscomb | Groot Winterhoek

Cockscomb Peak | Groot Winterhoek

All the climbing on Cockscomb is trad, there are no bolts. Cockscomb is an adventure country climbing venue. This means a fairly long walk-in, some veg, lots of fungus & potentialy loose rock. Currently there are 43 trad lines, but huge potential to open more routes.  Walk-in takes about 5 to 6 hours with climbing gear.

Cockscomb is the iconic mountain peak that is visible from Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) & Jefferies Bay.

Check out some of these pages for a better idea of the walk & location:



Stunning views. 



Cockscomb is on private land & there are 4 land owners involved. Access is controled & a bit complicated. Please contact info@easterncaperockclimbing.co.za  or the MCSA to arrange access or better still join a party of people who have been up Cockscomb before & have the access arranged.
