Easiest 5 Stars

Just had an awesome climb on Jacobs Ladder, the classic trad route up Table Mountain. It was amazing.....and the rappel off the top to start the adventure was breathtaking. Thank you to Teodore my guide who was fantastic and to Tristan for the easy and efficient communication arranging it. What a way to end a business trip!! Easiest 5 stars I've given.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Five stars for Tristan and Vertigo Adventures. I was on holiday from London and  booked a half day of climbing up Table Mountain. Tristan was all round a fantastic climbing guide and a pleasure to climb with

Andrew M

Abseiling & Rock Climbing

Thanks to Vertigo Adventures, Alex and Jesse, we had the most awesome afternoon. My 10 year old son and his friends had the most incredible introduction to rock climbing. Alex and Jesse were brilliant guides and Tristan was great at responding to emails and making our booking. I highly recommend them and will definitely be doing this again in the future!

Jacobs Ladder with Vertigo

His friendliness, expertise, and genuine desire to find fun in adventure truly stood out and without a doubt I could tell those qualities are what Vertigo Adventures is all about. Wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend them and can’t wait to be back some day!!

Great Knowledge

Tristan is knowledgeable, responsive, punctual, friendly and fun to hang out with. A+. Would recommend to everyone!

Nils

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Fantastic half day with Tristan. He's a great guide & clearly very experienced who knows the crag like the back of his hand - can give you tips for holds without even being able to see you directly.

Easy to organise and pay and very approachable. Certainly a unique way to get up the hill and get yourself a fan club as you make your way up under the cable car!
