Mount Lichen is a granite sphere located in the Mara Crocodile River Reserve. it is located on the outskirts of Nelspruit.
Drive from Nelspruit on the N4 towards Malalane, 26km outside of town you will find the Mara road on your right, turn right here and go through the boom gate. Access through the boom gate should not be a problem a friendly "we are coming to climb normally works". Continue down this road for 1.6km and park on the shoulder of the road (make sure vehicle is well out of the way). Here you will find the path that heads up the mountain.
From the car park follow the well marked path to the top of the mountain this will lead you to the base of the main crag.
