Indoor rock climbing
Contrary to popular belief, climbing is not a pursuit limited to the very strong. It has a lot more to do with mental ability and technique, so put your skills to the test at CityROCK Indoor Climbing Gym in Observatory, Cape Town.
A comprehensive introductory course – Mondays and Wednesdays from 18h00-20h00 – covers climbing basics, fitting your harness and knot tying. On completion you may enjoy seven days of free climbing at the gym. Climbers of all fitness levels and strengths are catered for. Climbing is done with a partner, as while the first person climbs, the second manages the safety rope that holds the climber.
There are three types of climbing available:
* Bouldering – climb over boulders;
* Top-rope climbing – climb routes with a rope attached to the top of the wall;
* Sport/lead climbing – climb a route following a rope clipped into holds along the wall.
There is a fully stocked shop on the premises and climbing gear is available for hire.

Picture this ... You’re strapped into your seat, hanging under the track of a looping roller coaster that’s hurtling down a twisting track at about 100km/h. Screams fill the air, and you’re not sure you’ll live to savour the memories ... If that sounds like fun to you, then Ratanga Junction’s the place you need to be!
Feel the kiss of the salty wind astraddle a classic car or motorcycle, while taking in the magnificence of Cape Town’s mountain and ocean scenery.
The varied topography of Cape Town, from its soaring mountains to long, flat beaches, forested slopes and challenging mountain passes, presents the keen cyclist with an array of routes to choose from.
It has long been a human dream to soar like a bird on lofty thermals – and paragliding comes pretty close. There couldn’t be a better place to experience the thrill of paragliding than high above the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, and the Twelve Apostles.
