The Left Wing

International > Africa > S Africa > Waterval Boven > Wonderland crags

Description

A quiet, peaceful area a little farther from the popular crags closer to the Tranquilitas campsite. Some real quality here though and worth the hike. Mostly east-facing. Goes into the shade roughly the same time as most of the other Wonderlands Crags. Plenty of beautiful Boven quartzite to climb.

Getting There

The same approach as Hallucinogen, but continue approximately 300 meters beyond the well-marked scramble into Hallucinogen. The decent gully is tricky to find from the main (mountain bike) trail. There is a small white MCSA sign down in the bushes to your right (from main trail). This marks a series of steps that lead steeply down to the crag. Follow trail to your left at the base of descent. Watch yourself on the steps though. A few had broken loose and could give an unwary hiker a very long slide into the unknown.
