The Paarl/Wellington section is home to a few avid mountaineers and rock climbers and there is certainly a movement in the youth of the club towards the development of young climbers & mountain lovers. This section of the club is one of the less talked about sections, yet it nevertheless stays very active. We have a few hotspots where we climb here in Paarl, these include but are not limited to:
- Paarl Rock Nature Reserve which has sport, trad and bouldering.
- Hellfire – A sport and trad crag on the other side of Du Toits kloof.
- We have the Kromrivier hut which is surrounded by boulders
- For some afternoon quick climbing there is the bouldering wall at Olive Glen, where members can enjoy a short after work session of bouldering and socialising with like-minded individuals. There is also potential on the Powries’ farm for some traditional climbing routes to be opened.
Safety is a major factor when climbing in the mountains and it is important to keep this in mind when venturing out to your favourite spot. See the safety guidelines section.
