ROCK CLIMBING in Gauteng  

Impact Adventure Africa offers one of the best known rock climbing sights in Gauteng. Strubens is a small crag near Johannesburg with an astonishing number of climbs – over 100 short sports routes and the odd trad line. Access is easy and grades range from easy to moderate, making it ideal for beginners and for training.  It’s usually quite busy on weekends.

For rock climbing at Impact Adventure Africa, we mainly make use of the Politician’ Crag. This starts on the right of the short gully. Average height is 8 m with 2 of the most epic routes, you don’t want to miss out on.

Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility and balance along with mental control.

We offer tailor made packages with all equipment provided – the price is for a ½ day activity and how many climbs will depend on your fitness level and ability to climb.

Your typical day will start with a meet/ greet and registration. You will be issued with your gear and it’s a 5-minute uphill walk to the crag – the band of rocks visible from the car park.

Depending on your fitness level we will start the warm up with either vision of Urban Gloom or Informal Settlement. The second route will be Cosmic Politician, followed by Street Fighter and Kamakazi

Price R 450 per person

There is a MCSA sponsored car guard with a panic button and security company support present on weekends and public holidays. Parking cost R 30 per vehicle. This fee is not included in the guide fee from Impact Adventure Africa.

Things to bring:

  • Camping chair
  • Sun Block
  • Hat/cap
  • Sport Shoes/sandals (Rather leave your slops at home)
  • Being almost east facing, the crag sees some sunlight in the morning but is usually shaded in the afternoon. Bring a warm Jacket as it may be cool late afternoons.
  • Personal Medication
  • There is no drinking water available at the crag So please bring your own refreshments.

Monteseel is a rocky crag just beyond Botha’s Hill, outside the village of Hillcrest, on the edge of the Valley of 1000 Hills; with views to match.

Many of these routes fall into the easy grade, making it optimal for beginners and children (Cain on the Think Wall, and Adam’s Apoplexy on the Hallucination Wall, for starters), but there are also moderate climbs, grade 16 to 19, and for hard climb Angel Dust Direct will leave you satisfied.
