Inclusions and Exclusions


Cable Car Tickets – By far the most expedient way of enjoying climbing on Table Mountain is to make use of Table Mountain Aerial Cableway where possible. On occasion, this may only be one-way (up/down).

Equipment – We strive to make your adventure as smooth and simple as possible – aiming to remove any addon and unexpected costs. There is nothing worse than reading a price and then learning that there is an assortment of addon-surprises.
To this end we provide, at no extra cost, the following:
Climbing Shoes (these are very personal so if there is one item which we do suggest you bring, it is shoes), Harness & Belay Device, Helmet, Rope / Trad Gear / Slings / Karabiners, etc, Small Backpack


Food – For all multi-day adventures we provide basic camping/hiking meals. Gourmet and specific dietary requirements can be provided, please consult with us on this regard.

Accommodation – For areas requiring overnight accommodation we book camping-style venues. Often Chalet style options exist, should you prefer non-tented options please feel free to contact us.

Country Routes – Please contact us in this regard. Some Country Routes require an overnight in which case food and bivi equipment will be provided


The time includes return cable-car ride however in-season waits may add as much as an hour to this time. Likewise, should the cable-car be closed due to weather and a hiking approach is needed, an hour could be added.

Public Liability – Vertigo Adventures has comprehensive public liability insurance, underwritten by Zenith Insurance. Public Liability is cover for negligence and thus we highly recommend comprehensive medical/travel insurance on the client’s behalf in the event of an incident requiring medical attention.
This is a 4hour trip

Permits – All of our adventure offerings take place within National Parks, Wilderness area’s or Reserves and require permits to hike or climb or overnight.
