This steep line is the left-hand line found on the short wall at the base of the scramble. It is largely protected by wires but has a single bolt to protect the crux. Powerful climbing on clean rock leads to a crux which lives up to the route's name. This route is seldom climbed.

Ethic: inherited from Kloof Gorge

Kloof is home to animals and therefore general crag rules apply such as no littering, loud conservative noise, etc. please do not feed the animals if you happen to see any. Kloof is mainly sport climbing and as such, bolting is allowed. However there are some crags that are considered to be mainly for trad climbing and as such it's generally accepted to not bolt there however it is still permitted and you won't be punished.
