Access Issues

This land is owned by Hermanus Visser. He is allowing climbing on his land provided that people don't bother him at his house in the trees above the boulders. The area will be closed if the following rules are disobeyed:

  • Do not enter without paying the required entry fees.
  • Do not litter (e.g. cigarette butts, finger tape).
  • Do not damage or remove vegetation.
  • Do not wander off existing paths.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • Do not bolt without the land owner's permission.
  • Bury any toilet paper etc. in a deep hole (>10cm).

Getting There

Go over Pakhuys Pass as if going to De Pakhuys, but continue 1.3km beyond the turn-off to De Pakhuys (the boulders are on the slope below the nek with trees). Go through the wire gate on your left (close it again if it was closed), drive 100m and park. Follow the path past the houses to the boulders (2 min walk).
