A north facing wall with several quality multi pitch lines mostly 3 pitches in length

Getting There 

From the stone arrow follow the main track that goes straight up (see photo). After 15-20 mins and some vertical gain you reach a major fork in the track. Turn left and continue up the hill. After 10 mins of steep uphill walking you reach another fork in the track. Turn left and follow the track for 10m. There is a poorly marked track on your left going directly downhill (Kens secret track). Follow this track as it winds its way to the base of the Kookmeyer wall.
