Description

Stunning, high quality sport climbing with a wide variety of moderate to elite grade routes from 15 to 35m.

Approach

To get there walk back out of the de Hoek entrance along the road for about 100m. A path leads right and up the mountain, it is sometimes marked by a small cairn. Follow this path up and then parallel to the road until you get to the main overhaging wall.
