Description

This area, on the west side of the valley (stream left, if you must) contains a number of boulders, and also the top wall of the valley is described here as the embankment.The bolts for all the routes were sponsored by the CUT mountain club in Bloemfontein during the 2010 bolting course.

Access issues inherited from Leliehoek

The climbs lie in the Little Rock resort (formerly known as Leliehoek) which is picturesquely set in a small wooded valley 3 minutes drive from the Ladybrand town centre. The park has the usual camping and chalet facilities as well as a small bar and a sizeable and most welcome outdoor swimming pool. Ladybrand is well catered for with many shops, banks, garages and places to eat. There are plenty of other things to do in the area. The town boasts an 18 hole golf course, hiking and biking trails as well as being the gateway to the Lesotho Highlands. To book, contact the Little Rock reception at: 051–924 0260.

Approach

Follow the trail a short distance up from the Bigfoot boulder, and the Tough As Nails boulder will appear on your left, right next to the trail. You will be looking at the North face of the boulder, with ?? Chris Joubert’s route through the open book visible. The top of the boulder can be reached easily from the West side. Gunman and Scarface are on the Southern side of the boulder. The remaining routes are listed as you walk from there anti-clockwise around the boulder.

Left of Scarface. A bit short but a really cool climb. Interesting technical and powerful moves.
