Best setting of a crag in the Peninsula.


From Kaapse Weg, near the top of the pass on the Noordhoek side turn off at Gate 2. Park at the end of the gravel road (-34.090558, 18.421029).

Follow the ‘Steenberg Peak’ path past a huge square boulder on the right and continue along until the path turns to the right and starts ascending. Once at the top of the valley (± 20 minutes from the car), take the left path at the split for about another 10 minutes. Keep a sharp eye out for a small cairn on a rock on the left (and another on the edge of the ridge) which marks the vague path on the left snaking through the shrubbery down to the crags. The path starts at a rain water runoff point on the left of the main path and a group of large boulders to the right (-34.093400, 18.435723).

Note: If you reach another split in the path at a stone sign with a huge low overhang to the right of the path, you have gone about 100 metres too far.

Follow the vague path along and down through some boulders to reach a broad ledge. Go right (facing out) along this ledge, following cairns and down a little rock step. Continue along and down till you reach a large cairn. From here descend a steepish grassy gully to reach another ledge.

You are now at the level of the crags. Go right (facing out) for Killer Wall and Middle Buttress and left for the others. To get to Faithless Wall: When you get to the broad ledge after going through some boulders, turn right (facing out) and continue along this ledge for a few hundred metres (following the odd cairn).
