The Lineup (in Afrikaans, die Uitkennings Parade) is a great crag for winter as it gets a lot of sun. It goes into the shade during mid-afternoon, so climb here after mid-afternoon in summer.


Approach

Park at the start of Keur Kloof (as for Heaven crag). Walk towards the Rose Bowl and then take the turn-off for Joe's Garage. The Lineup is on the left hand side of the Rose Bowl valley. It is orange in colour. The Lineup has one of the shortest walk-ins in Keur Kloof (approximately 25 minutes). PathToLineup.jpg
