Wonderwall, Gauteng’s largest and best-known indoor climbing gym, lives up to its name – a huge area dedicated to climbing. In addition to about 500 square metres of top-rope and lead walls, with routes throughout the grade range, there’s a three-metre-high bouldering cave. Courses and individual coaching are offered for beginners through to advanced climbers.
Gear is available to rent and there’s a well-stocked gear shop, as well as all the niceties such as showers, lockers, snack shop and, joy of joys, a fully licensed restaurant and bar.
Although it’s a great place to climb during the day, the gym gets very crowded at peak periods. This is a particular problem on the lower grade routes, which are all bunched together so, after fighting the rush-hour traffic to get there after work, you often find yourself fighting for routes.
Wonderwall is closed on Mondays and open from 10am to 10pm Tuesdays to Fridays and 9am-6pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
