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