==Restaurant Crag==
 
Please note that the best access to the Restaurant crags (and Gaper, Gym, Triple Tier) is to park at Tegwaan Country Getaway (https://www.tegwaan.co.za/). When you drive out of the main road of Boven heading to Tranquilitas, turn left after 2,5km into Tegwaan. This is 4,5km from the Tranquilitas Camp on your right. Drive straight towards the main houses (close the farm gate behind you) and park by the sign that says "Parking". Walk straight over the dirt track onto a hiking trail past some dams and follow signs for the "Stone Circle Trail". Along the trail, go over a T-juction onto a Y-split about 30m further. Take the left split and follow your nose towards the crags. Close to the little gorge where a small crag called The Gym is found, there is another Y-split in the path. The left trail goes to the Gym and Restaurant/Gaper areas. The right split goes to Triple Tier. Enjoy.

It is sunny except early morning, evening and cloudy days;). Corners are in shade from 2:30 in summer. You can access the crag via the large pillar descent gully on the left, or via the descent gully right of "the platform" using the corridor entrance halfway down the gully.  Lines from Left to right: BROWN TOWN 19 **** - [Trad] Corner crack situated at the bottom of the pillar gully, just before 2m high roof.
