Hellfire is 45 mins drive from Cape Town.

Driving there one emerges from the Hugenot tunnel into Du Toits Kloof (= gorge) to be surrounded by the majestic peaks of The Witteberg and, half hidden, Du Toits peak.
Both these mountains offer long traditional climbs.

Hellfire itself is a smaller band of red cliff on the lower reaches of the A ridge of Du Toits peak.

Drive 2 km past the hotel/resort and u-turn immediately after the Klip river bridge.

Drive back 400m to park on the verge after a large sign.
The path begins at the other end of the roadside barrier.
The walk up takes 45min on a moderate slope.

This cliff is north facing and the best time to visit is autumn or spring, although winter can be excellent when it is not raining. The rock dries very quickly after rain. In Summer the best bet is to get there as early as possible, the rock stays in the shade until 11.00am.

There are 140 trad routes and 36 sport.
Best grades:
- Sport 6c's & 7a+'s
- Trad 4 - 7a

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion
