This is an introductory climbing course, an adventure suitable for anyone wanting to get outdoors and experiment with the sport of rock climbing.
A short walk takes us up to the natural crags, we find a comfortable shady spot to start our climbing instruction, beginning with basic rope work, knots, climbing equipment, safety, belaying and climbing techniques. The course involves top rope climbing, the perfect way to get to grips with the rock.
We concentrate on discovering your natural ability to climb. By the end of the day you should be confident enough to tackle routes in a climbing gym or belay a partner with competence. You’ll be able to relax during lunch before taking another crack at the crags, a leisurely walk back to the cars rounds off the day.

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
