People have been rock climbing on the Lady's Slipper since about 1949. Situated 35km out of Port Elizabeth, the climbing routes are a pleasant walk up a hill. The boulders are scattered, but most are at the base of the Slipper. Rock is quartzite. There are 32 sport routes, 300 short trad routes & about 100 boulder problems. There is potential for new routes & boulder problems. One open sport project is begging to be opened & there are 8 boulder projects still to be sent.
