Description 

Absolutely superb rock in a climbers paradise

Trad and sport galore

Getting There 

advisable to drive the Ceres route and not the Citrusdal/Clanwilliam route. The gravel road is 10 km shorter and in a better condition. Cape Town to Nuwerust Rest Camp is 245km.
Ceres Route:

Take the N1 north. Take the R44 to Ceres.
Please ensure that you have sufficient petrol before leaving Ceres. (Cell-phones will only work until you reach the small town Op Die Berg.)
When you enter Ceres turn left at the second robot towards Prince Alfreds' Hamlet. (R303)
Drive through Prince Alfreds' Hamlet (beware of speed traps in Ceres and Prince Alfred).
Drive over the Gydo Pass. Keep driving until you reach the little town of Op Die Berg.
Op Die Berg is 20 km from the top of Gydo Pass. Do not take the right turn to Touwsriver on the way to Op Die Berg.
200m Past Op Die Berg is a sign that says Cederberg/ Ceres Karoo. Turn right.
Follow the tar road for aprrox. 18km.
At the end of the tar road keep going straight onto the gravel road.
Nuwerust is 45km from the beginning of the gravel road.
Farms along the way that you will pass are Sneeukop, Luiperds Kloof, Zonderwater and Mount Ceder. When you reach Mount Ceder you will see a mountain pass in front of you.
