If you are walking in the the Ou Meul, Lion Said is the smallish sort stack on the left side of the kloof. It is directly opposite Sloth. The image below is actually a view looking from the Montagu Springs side – you can see Lion Said on the right (it looks kind of like a lion’s head). The crag gets all day shade and the two easier routes are excellent for beginners.
