Sacha will be leading a hike from the Hamerkop house. The plan is to do the Grootkloof circuit, but it is tough and the actual hike will depend on the fitness of the group. There may be an option of a shorter walk up Hamerkop Kloof. Please tell Sacha if you are interested in that option and we will try to organise it. Contact the office to book and for more details: email@example.com
MCSA Johannesburg and Magaliesberg sections have again taken the initiative to keep access to this popular winter-climbing area. The venue is too hot in summer but it is always so nice to soak up the winter sunshine on the annual Wellington pilgrimage. The multi-pitch sport-climbing on the big granite dome offers pleasant technical face climbing at reasonable grates. There are over 20 multi-pitch sports climbs of grade 20 and below.

For July Camp 2018 we will be returning to the Southern Berg to the evocatively-named Crystal Waters Base Camp-site on the farm of Mr and Mrs Arthur Cole. We extend our grateful thanks to them for allowing us to share their beautiful farm which lies on the banks of the Mzimude River (pictured). July Camp has not been at Crystal Waters since 2010, so it will be a pleasant return to this beautiful place.
It is a wonderfully well-situated Base Camp, giving good access to numerous day walks, exciting sub-camp opportunities with a number of caves in the Little Berg in which to sleep, as well as several mountain passes giving access to the Escarpment – for those who seek the challenge of longer trips or traverses in the High Berg. Above all, there are wonderful swimming pools! Base Camp will be situated within easy walking distance of the Giant’s Cup Trail and also important, within easy walking distance of the carpark.
