Picnic Boulder

Park at the Bosduif picnic spot and walk along the road for about 150m. Turn to the left and walk across the veld to the obvious boulders. The Picnic Boulder may be recognised by the large 'scoop' that appears to have been taken out of the left-hand side of the boulder as you approach it. The anchors can be reached by scrambling up the back of the boulder
