    Arguably the Best City sports climbing destination in the country centered around two main areas: Kloof Gorge, and Shongweni Dam. Kloof is a suburb off the M13 highway, while Shongweni is 30mins out of the city on the N3. Both areas are sandstone, however that is where the similarity ends, with Kloof offering a series of excellent crags, largely face climbing, while Shongweni is steep climbing centered on Wave Cave and Magnetic Wall. Durban is often overshadowed by Cape Town as a City Climbing Destination, and having lived in both I say Durban offers more for the sport climber than Cape Town beyond all measure on both quantity and quality. Durbs has some quality trad crags but almost no Bouldering. Durban is a fantastic winter destination as it is dry, low humidity and pleasant temps.
