These routes are on the cliffs flanking the waterfall above the pool and most of them are accessed by rappeling down from chains to a hanging belay above the water. The routes follow from left to right (clock wise) when faced from the bridge. Makes for some good spectator value. These routes are not very high but pumpy for their grades. Warm up before doing them. Take your shortest 30m rope. If you don't mind the potential swim or some wet climbing shoes or chalk bag, the more adventurous can give it a bash at deep water soloing.

On the main face across from the bridge to Graskop. Rap down from anchors and steer left. Steeper than it looks but good holds. Some nice laybacks.

On the main face across from the bridge 3m right of FTSOI. Rap down to hanging belay. Short but pumpy for the grade. Crank the small roof with funky moves. Balancy.
