The CradocksBerg climb is 1579m and the George Peak is 1337m. These beautiful Outeniqua Mountains tower above George and form the iconic background to this coastal town.
The ascent of these two peaks is DEMANDING, we gain a respectable 1330m in altitude from base to the summit of Cradocks Berg, however the uninterrupted views of the Coast from Knysna to Mossel Bay, an eagle eye view of the surrounding Outeniqua peaks, pristine fynbos and of course the thrill of reaching the summit high above everyone else make this trail a delightful treat.

A very professionally run outfit, so rare in the current climate. From enquiry, to booking and through to the actual experience, 5/5, our company members thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...everyone's still talking about it... well done guys, keep it up, and see you again one day.
I have travelled the world and used over 50 adventure companies, and i have never had a company keep 50% of my money because i cannot make the activity, especially with over 5 months notice.
People deserve to know that once you have paid this company whatever the circumstances, you will not be getting your money back. well maybe some if you argue with them.
Just finished the Drakensberg Grand Traverse with GoVertical. What a wonderful experience. Garth's passion and knowledge of the Drakensberg is legendary. Ill definitely see you again for a trek in the Garden Route.
Very experienced guides and looked after our every need while in the mountains. Highly recommended.
GoVertical really showed us a great time whilst exploring the Drakensberg and the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Thank you again for a wonderful time in South Africa
We spent days with the Govertical team exploring trails on the Garden Route. Fantastic guys. Thank you
