A. Park at the Elandskrans reception area, as described for The Restaurant. Walk west through the resort until you see the old put-put (crazy golf) course. 20 metres or so left of this is a good trail leading down gently into the valley, you will see the small crags of the pasture facing you. Cross over the stream and up to the base of the crag.

B. Park INSIDE the ACRA retreat – just ring the bell and the owners will welcome you. Be sure to have a beer on the deck afterwards, its stunning.. From the house, walk towards Elandskrans Resort for 120 metres, down and then left to the base of the crags.
