Site Update (May 1st 2013): All weather maps have been improved to make them much more useful for climbers. Animate either temperature or weather and move your cursor to any mountain location to see how the weather is forecast to evolve at various elevations. Because of the limited space on these large region maps, we can only show this at a subset of locations. We will add much more detailed maps very soon.

Giant's Castle Climbing Notes
Gavin Raubenheimer. Peak High Mountaineering from SOUTH AFRICA writes:
Giant's Castle summit is accessible via Giant's Castle Pass and is a tough hike usually taking 2 days round trip. The south side is home to the best water-ice climbing in southern Africa. The north face has some good rock routes on, including Schole's Route (7 pitch moderate) and Sherman's Route, an easy 2 pitch route.
