Has anyone climbed Andre's Knob at Garden Castle before?
I have seen it from the escarpment on a Grand Traverse, but was really sick at the time and got no photos. I got some shots of the reverse angle from Thaba Ngwangwe and am still not sure if it is climbable without rock climbing. According to Murch's Khulu list (MCSA 1994 journal) it is a hiking peak, but the same list says that Thaba Ngwangwe is only doable by rock climbing (a point I disproved when I climbed it a few months ago - maybe its a B-C grade, but barely), so I don't want to rely on that.
The reverse angle of the land bridge looks like this:
