Cockscomb

Cockscomb Peak | Rock Climbing

All the climbing on Cockscomb is trad, there are no bolts. Cockscomb is an adventure country climbing venue. Think long walk-in, some veg, lots of fungus & loose rock. there are about 20 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 Port Elizabeth. 

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