This was the first area to be developed at Boven, back in the early nineties, and still hosts some of the highest quality climbing in Boven. The crags are situated around the Elandskrans Resort which used to be a very popular campsite but at the time of writing is closed. If you visit one crag here make it the Restaurant Crag!

At the time of writing the Elandkrans Report is closed. It is possible to pass through the resort to access the crags but probably not a great idea to leave your car here.
