Start 5m downstream from Straight Edge on the true left of the kloof just upstream of a small cave (Swhweesicles). Start at the base of a triangular slab below an obvious downstream facing dihedral with a smooth face on the right.

  1. 25m (16) Scramble up triangular slab to top of triangle (rusty piton here). Jam up crack with difficulty for about 3m until your feet are on the good rail. Step left and around the corner onto a wide ledge. Just around the corner is a wide crack, climb this to an extensive grassy ledge. Walk 5m left to a large tree on wide flattish rock ledge.

  2. 18m (13) Climb grey and orange slab directly behind tree to top.
