The Waterfall crags

Description 

The iconic crags of Boven. The city is named from it, Waterval Boven means above the waterfall in Dutch and this waterfall is pretty damn impressive. There is many crags in this area with a stack classic lines with an atmospheric plus value. A definite must in your passage in Boven.

Getting There 

From Roc’n Rope, drive downhill towards the railway station and turn right, entering Emgwenya township. Go all the way down to the T junction and turn left. Less than half mile down, just before the waterworks, take the second steep passable dirt road. It will lead you a loww-level concrete bridge. Then turn right and right again 100 yards at a fork. Continue underneath the main N4 highway. The parking is at the dead end just above the Eland Falls.

Do not leave any bags or valuables in the car. Your best option is to be dropped of from the friendly staff of Roc’n Rope.

Start is a bit delicate. After the 4th bolt, beautiful sustained climbing. Heading for the 9th and 10th bolts is cruxy then you can relax following a broken corner on side pulls and good holds. Very nice climb. (South African grade 18)...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
