The Chosspile is the closest proper sport climbing crag to Johannesburg, being a bit closer than Bronkies. It also has the full spectrum of grades, from super easy, to 33 and beyond. ‘Choss’ as it is affectionately known has provided a place keep fit and work on projects, get away from the big smoke and talk crap, for a couple of generations of Gauteng climbers. The crag overlooks the Hartebeespoort Dam wall and the views are pretty good, especially if the sluice gates are open, but the smells can be less than good, depending on the time of year and the wind direction! Unlike the crag's name there is actually some damn good rock here with some fine routes too. The rock is a quartzite with interesting features; pinches and holes and blocky jugs. Climbs range from slabby to desperately overhanging; take your pick!
