Llandudno, Cape Town
18 km from the centre of Cape Town and approached by one of the most scenic drives, over Suikerbossie Hill from Hout Bay or in the other direction from Camps Bay, along Victoria Road, Llandudno lies nestled in a private and peaceful cove with one of the most secluded and beautiful beaches in the city.Highballing is an important part of bouldering and in other parts of the world (e.g. Bishop, CA) climbers are pushing the limits of the sport by climbing boulders that would dwarf the Guardian Angel boulder. If hitting the deck frightens you, then bring more pads or stay in the gym, but please don’t stagnate the progression of our sport and scar these beautiful boulders with bolts.The area is divided into two sectors, split by an obvious clearing in the centre of the headland. The biggest boulder is “the egg” and serves as a good point of orientation (still unclimbed). Llandudno boasts over one hundred documented problems and counting.It is important to think out of the box at Llandudno and not get caught up in the “no more problems, all too easy or too hard” mindset.
