New route at Kransberg

Alignment 19 ***

Climb the thin seam, splitting the buttress, to the right of Angelica’s deep crack. This is easily seen from where the path enters the kloof at the base of Sunshine Crack. Walk around Angelica’s pillar and scramble up to a ledge at the base of the crack, about 25 meters right of Angelica’s pillar.

• 15m 19 Climb the crack for 10 meters. Step left and follow the crack to a small ledge above an overlap.

• 30m 15 Follow the crack tending slightly left to the large halfway ledge.

• 30m 15 From the top of a small boulder, step into a shallow openbook, then make a brave move to good footholds on the right. Continue up diagonally left to the big block on a ledge.

Walk past the block, about 3 meters, before climbing more or less straight up for another 15 meters.

• 30m 12 Make a beeline for the top, avoiding the grass as much as possible and finish spectacularly up some large blocks.

First Ascent: 2019 Sarel Petrus and Roger Diamond
