Waterval Boven means „above the waterfall‟ in Dutch .…and the waterfall is pretty damn impressive! To look at it from the tourist view-point is great, but to climb on the crags beside it is much more exhilarating! There are a number of crags in this area, with a stack of classic „atmospheric‟ sport and trad pitches. Make the effort to climb here at least once on your trip, a day down at the Waterfall crags is always memorable, mostly for the right reasons!
