Description

This is the big main wall one sees as you drive towards the camp site. The area is named for the large white graffiti cross just to the right of route 5.

Access issues inherited from Leliehoek

The climbs lie in the Little Rock resort (formerly known as Leliehoek) which is picturesquely set in a small wooded valley 3 minutes drive from the Ladybrand town centre. The park has the usual camping and chalet facilities as well as a small bar and a sizeable and most welcome outdoor swimming pool. Ladybrand is well catered for with many shops, banks, garages and places to eat. There are plenty of other things to do in the area. The town boasts an 18 hole golf course, hiking and biking trails as well as being the gateway to the Lesotho Highlands. To book, contact the Little Rock reception at: 051–924 0260.

Approach

Walk up a path behind the Commander 9.5 boulder or from between the huts behind the swimming pool. The area can also be accessed from the Embankment via a scenic path that crosses the stream below the imposing overhanging bulbous golf ball prow.

Descent notes

Routes 2-5 share the same lower off chains and some bolts.
