Here is what some of our previous clients have to say...

  • My wife and I spent a half day learning how to climb and abseil with Justin and enjoyed it immensely.  He has set up some great climbs in the Little Karoo, a 20min or so walk from Montagu.  All equipment is provided and is of a very high standard whilst Justin has a great knack at keeping you relaxed throughout the climbs.  Highly recommended and there are some great photo opportunities!

  • It was time to rock climb on Monday morning and our guide, Justin, picked us up right after breakfast. He drove us the quick 5 minutes to his house to get our shoes and harnesses and then we walked to the area to rock climbing. The area was beautiful up on a hillside so we could overlook the town and also the mountains. Justin put up the first route, but after figuring out that we knew what we were doing he let me lead the rest of them! It was great climbing – long routes and a variety of moves. The last route of the day was Moby Dick (5.10b). Moby was a bulge ¾ of the way up that you had to climb around in the most awkward moves ever! I lead it clean, which I was stoked about because I haven’t climbed since May! We both enjoyed every minute of climbing and really enjoyed getting to know Justin who has also climbed all over the world including Smith Rocks in Oregon!
