Waitpinga

Waitpinga is now open subject to some conditions – see the Waitpinga March 2010 guide for information.

Access via Carmichaels Property:
Closed for winter lambing until August (2014).

Access via Heysen Trail:
Open as long the Heysen Trail is open.

Camping:
There is no camping allowed on the farmer’s property that is used to access the cliff.

Lower-offs/rope length:
The updated guide highlights rope length as an issue and points out a variety of routes whereby a 70m cord may prove useful. However, some detail is lacking with regards to lowering off Achilles Gambit/BoB lines – as a 60m will definitely NOT reach the ground.
Solution? Again – the guide will be updated to reflect an interim lower off point for these routes (i.e. the True North Easy anchor).
