Description

Can you guess what WB stands for!? An eerie crag, with the wind howling through the gap. Boer Skiet.. is probably the most exposed 17 in Boven, great fun at the end of a day.

Approach

Park as for ACRA Wall. From the parking, walk back along the dirt road until a small trail after about 20m leads down to the railway. Follow the railway track to the mouth of the train tunnel. The WB Gulley is now on your right. Scramble 5 m down the gulley to belay chains with the routes on your left. [ GPS: S25 38 04.2 E30 20 43.1]

Clip the first bolt on LT, then traverse up to the right hand line. Translation : “Farmer shoots thief dead.” This was a newspaper headline that day!
