Steenberg Buttress is a great place to get into trad climbing, as there are many “friendly” routes. But also offers excellent harder climbs as good as anywhere on the Peninsula, with huge potential for new routing of all grades.
Almost all the routes in this guide are worth climbing. Even some of the longer 2-star routes, which although a bit broken by ledges, still offer an adventurous day out on the hill. The newer, shorter and single pitch routes, particularly on Rocky Horror Buttress, are of a high quality, many of them deserving 4 and 5 stars and compare to some of the best on the Peninsula, including the “Ledge”.
It also has a few great tea caves and tea ledges where you can base yourself, depending on which area you are are climbing. And the best part is that you will have the whole mountain to yourself.
