Description

On the stream side of the boulder, there is a small "passage" between the boulder proper (on the left when coming from the stream) and a low sloping boulder on the right which is a nice place for onlookers to sit and watch.

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.

Grade Route

Steep and sustained. Crux is at mid height. The bolts are a little sparse (compare the number of bolts with AGH, which is the same height), so don’t attempt to lead this route unless you are confident of the grade). Until the 4th bolt has been clipped, you have the potential of a groundfall if things go slightly wrong. We have permission to add two more bolts (in between what are bolts 1 and 2, and 3 and 4). Someone should try to do this…

Climbs a nice line of holds and pockets through overhanging and then vertical rock. Very sustained at its grade, although a good hands-off rest can be had after you have dispensed with the crux.

FA: Jacques Raubenheimer, 10 Feb 2012

A prominent scoop goes up this face of the boulder. This route climbs up just to the left of the scoop, with a slightly overhanging start. The route is very sustained with minimal rests.

Towards the right end of the boulder wall when standing in the little "passage" and facing the boulder. Climb up to the overhang and then up the right of the arete.

FA: Jonny "Commander 9.5" Williams, 2002

Just further right than Route 101. Climb the rightward slanting arete.
