How about Snake Face?

Great setting and always more appealing than many of the sport pics going around. Nice one!

It's an arete, here is a different persective....

Its a spot about 50 km's north east of Middelburg, current access arrangements is a MCSA meet once a year. The place is awesome, apparently the owner is reasonably amenable to climbers, so it should be possible in the future to organise more frequent meets. Not really feasible in summer, it would be way to hot. Lots of potential, huge open books, endless cracks, good solid rock and very clean. Easy walk in and you top out right at the camp site. Nice river with swimming pools. Car camping...
