Dassie Grot

The Fragile (B) 23 **** Climb the arête on the opposite right hand side when entering the cave. 25 meters long

Deon Wessels, 2012

S&M (10B) 23 To the left of The Fragile. Shares the anchors and last 2 bolts with The Fragile. First bolt for short people or morale.

The route stars with a very crimpy beginning on near a vertical, pretty blank face. The crux comes after the 4th draw and is followed by a technical and tricky mantel to get up over the little roof feature. Moving further the route gets easier. Route is 26 meters long
