  • Conservation: Weeding @ Dome with Penny

    There is a lot of invasive Crofton weed growing in and next to the lower Dome stream.  It is flowering now, so this is our chance to weed out the large bushes before they seed and to look for seedlings and new growth.

    You won’t be able to see them, but there are some large Crofton bushes growing next to the stream to the right of the tree.

    Please come and support the on-going battle against alien vegetation in our kloofs.  And after a hard mornings weeding,  you’ll still have time for a swim in the pools.

    Bring gloves and garden tools .  There are some spare tools available if you don’t have anything suitable.

    We’ll meet at the Dome parking lot at 8.15 to leave at 8.30.

  • Weekend climbing at Kransberg with Ulrike
    All day
    2019.10.19-2019.10.20

    Meet leader:  Ulrike Kiefer  tel 072 254 8380   / email: ukiefer@icon.co.za

    Kransberg offers good quality multi-pitch climbing at moderate grades.  With routes of between 3 and 6 pitches long and grades from 11 to 22 it is a great place to hone your multi-pitch skills before heading off to Blouberg.  The exposure is excellent, and the birdlife unrivalled.
    The walk in is steep, and for most sections without a path.  Expect a little bush bashing and wear long pants.  The hike to the base of the cliffs takes about an hour.Car camping. Bring your own water for the campsite.
