How to find Ledgers Cave from Mnweni Pass?

Post by LouisBreytenbach » Wed Mar 30, 2016 8:35 pm

Attention Mnweni hiking experts.

I will be returning to hike in the mnweni area this winter. The previous time I could not find Ledgers cave due to low cloud and very poor visibility. I am also relatively new to this area.
Can someone please explain to me how to find ledgers cave when approaching from the top of mnweni pass.

It will be highly appreciated. :o

Turn left and follow the escarpment edge till you find a large cairn marking the descent gully.

As you get to the top of Mweni you will automatically head into the dip towards the stream. Continue to the stream. At the stream turn left - upstream and walk in that line up the rise back to the edge of the escarpment. Look for cairn and descent point.
Really, its not that bad...I think it's my shoes...
