The Verreaux’s Eagles are nesting at Wilgepoort.
So as not to disturb the eagles climbers must please avoid routes from and including McFat's LGP to Bottleneck Bulge.

The Verreaux's Eagles have failed to raise a chick this year.
The climbing restriction has been lifted.
A visit today confirmed the nest was deserted and no eagles about.
The last confirmed sighting of adults at nest was on 15 July.
Please post if you visited Wilgepoort and had sightings later in July or in August.
