Offers excellent sustained easy and moderate climbs. Unfortunately it is a bit shot and those days, there is some safety issues.
Northwest facing so cold in the morning and getting some sun from midday.

Getting There 

It is close to Boven’s Township. There is a couple of options, to be on the safe side, please inquire at Roc’n Rope. (

Up the low angle arete at the base of the decent scramble. Super fun and easy. Great first lead climb. If it was 10-20 meters longer it would be world-class for the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Went to this crag this past weekend with some friends and family. It is best to check with locals about the logistics of getting there. Also best to go in a decent-sized group.

The area and the climbing are great, but it gets way less traffic than it should, given the proximity to the township and the distance from the Wonderlands Crag.

If you park at the abandoned Elandkrans Resort the current charge is R20 per person.

It is a bit of furnace on warm days though. Just FYI, the actual name of the crag is "Flying IS Fun".
