Main Crag, Bushmanskloof Nature Reserve, Cedarberg

The crag is on the south side of the valley approximately 2 kilometres upstream from the Bushmanskloof Lodge where the track crosses the stream. A short walk up the gully to the right of the crag leads one to a set of ladders that ascend the wall. To the left of the ladders is a steep, clean wall.

Ginger 20m 17 (9 bolts)

The route heads up the prominent crack system up the middle of this wall. It is named in memory of the bushman art historian Townley "Ginger" Johnson.

Starting in a chimney climb up and left to the first bolt. Follow the obvious crack system to the top using lay-aways, hand-jams and the occasional hold. The rock is clean and solid. Ginger is a really attractive route for its grade.

First Ascent: David Davies, Hilton Davies and Mark van Niekerk, 21 November 1998.
