Starts right underneath the bridge going to Graskop. Climb the face or the small overhang to a flake and into the roof. Some skip the 4th bolt but then you shouldn’t bugger up the next! Either go straight across the roof (FA: Tiaan Boshoff 1996) or move out to the right (FA: Jaco de Wet 1998).

FA: Jaco de Wet, 1998

6-7m right of OB. The face above a huge overhang. Start on a little platform on the left and then traverse onto the face. Please be kind to the little cliff-aloe at the top. To reduce drag you can unclip the first draw after clipping the second.

FA: Craig le Roux, 1996

The same as the direct. At the 4th bolt traverse right and then climb to the same anchors. A bit of a zig-zag with some drag on the rope. Take your longest draws for the 4th, 5th, and 6th.

FA: Jaco de Wet, 1996
