Description

The Junction holds the easiest and some of the best multi-pitch routes in Karbonaatjieskraal.

Access issues inherited from Karbonaaitjies Kraal

The climbing is located on Karoo 1's property. Recently access has been re-negotiated with the Karoo 1 hotel. To climb one has to stay at the Karoo 1 hotel although further negotiations are in process.

Approach

Hike across the top of the main amphitheatre to the west ridge. About 30m down the west ridge there is a rap point that will take you to the bottom of the junction wall. This rap is exactly 60M so don't attempt with shorter ropes.

You can also approach by following the cairns down the west ridge. (quicker than rappeling)

Ethic inherited from Karbonaaitjies Kraal

Avoid bolting.
