The Cauldron is a short overhanging crag situated next to the overnight hut in Donker Kloof. The routes are are short and powerful. The walk in is an easy flat walk (as for the Scoop), but turn left at the large tree before the overnight hut (avoid the bee hive by taking a wide berth around the tree). The flat sandy base is child friendly, but bring a blanket.
