CityROCK gym is temporarily closed due to the national lockdown.

CityROCK Gear Shop and Mountain Mail Order are open.

If you have a debit order membership, we have NOT frozen this automatically. Please contact us if you wish to freeze or cancel.  You have the option to cancel your membership completely, and all future payments will be stopped. Reduce your membership until we re-open to an amount you can afford. Or, you can freeze your membership for 1 to 6 months. This is designed to give you flexibility and avoid the re-joining fee when we are able to open again.

Membership revenue is by far the biggest chunk of our business. With the gyms closed, our debit order run is the only income we have to keep us going and to ensure there is a CityROCK to go back to. Most of our overhead expenses remain active – staff salaries, rent, utilities, insurance, etc. While we are closed, membership revenue is going directly to pay those costs and keep our staff employed.

We have to hear from you first, so please contact us by emailing jhbmemberships@cityrock.co.za or ctmemberships@cityrock.co.za if you would like to freeze your debit order.

If you have chosen not to freeze your membership, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU! You are assisting us in ensuring there will be a CityROCK to return to and we express our sincere gratitude.

Welcome to CityROCK  Cape Town!
Climb     I        Gear      I      Yoga

Indoor climbing is a fun way of exercising in a safe and vibrant environment. Climbing is not about sitting on a treadmill for what feels like hours – each climb is different and will challenge you every time both physically and mentally.

Our climbing facilities include a large bouldering area (bouldering is climbing 3-4m high without a rope) and high walls for roped climbing.

We cater to many different audiences – from first-time kids to experienced outdoor climbers, and everyone in between.

CityROCK is more than just a climbing gym, it is where like-minded people meet and share their passion for climbing.

Our coffee shop area has a relaxed vibe and is the ideal place to meet friends, climbing partners and make plans for your next trip. Free Wi-Fi makes it a great spot to interact through your social media network, while having coffee, chatting, or browsing through climbing magazines and route guides.


We also cater for children’s birthday parties and corporate events. We have a well-established yoga studio that caters for a variety of yoga styles, and we also offer various climbing training courses for kids and adults alike.

CityROCK is also the home of the finest specialist outdoor gear shop in the country. We stock a variety of top local and international brands and our friendly staff will be able to assist you in kitting up with the best gear for your next adventure.

CityROCK encourages outdoor climbing and allows for the option to rent out selected gear, so if you’re traveling to Cape Town or Rocklands and don’t have space for your bulky bouldering pad or have a friend who want to visit the crag for the first time we can help you out. Click here for outdoor gear rental pricing.

We pride ourselves on service excellence and our staff is always available to assist in any way. So why not give us a call or pop in and try it out, it’s always the right time to something new. We have affordable day pass and monthly membership options. Click here to view our rates page or sign up as a member.

Please note, no children under the age of 5 will be allowed to climb at CityROCK. No exceptions will be made. Children must be supervised by their parent or guardian at all times. We do not provide supervision.  For more about kids rules and climbing, click here.
