Groot Rivier | Plettenberg Bay

Groot Rivier | Plettenberg Bay

The Travaskis Needle is the most prominent feature of climbing at Groot Rivier. It is well worth the effort to go and climb it. There is massive potential for more routes in the area around the needle. The sport area has 7 sport lines & 4 trad lines. All sandstone.

This gorge is a huge wilderness gorge & deserves much greater exploration.



There are no known access issues. Don’t make fires anywhere near forestry.
