  • Climbing at Eureka Dom
    08:00-17:00

    Eureka Dome (the name of the extreme western buttress) is a trad-climbing area on the escarpment of the Magaliesberg, boasting some of the longest climbs in the area, including Upthrust (19) which, at 140 metres, is the longest recorded climbin the Magaliesberg. There are many vulture nests on the cliffs especially between Eureka Chimney and Eureka Gully, which means that:
    > climbers get to check out vultures riding the thermals and checking you out
    > some of the main Skeerpoort cliffs are off-limits to avoid any possible disturbance of the vulture colony.

  • Tonquani Autumn Hike
    08:00-17:00

    This is a longish hike from the south of the Magaliesberg to the nek, then east and around the top of Kiepersol. We go down into Tonquani for lunch and a swim. It is a pleasant walk in the grasslands with some striking rock formations on the northern side of the kloof. We should get back to the cars at 3 or 4 pm, depending on the speed of the hike. You need to be fairly fit because there are no paths. Take enough water to last the morning.
    If there is enough interest we will offer a shorter, easier hike directly to Tonquani kloof.
    Contact the office for further details: admin@jhb.mcsa.org.za
