Kingskloof routes not on Wiki

Post by JanWilKlim » Wed Nov 11, 2015 2:14 pm

Hallo, it's me again.

I could not find these on the Wiki - or is there another place to look?

Does anyone perhaps have the names of the 2 really easy routes between THE FOUR HORSEMEN and CRUCIFIXION ? Lovely for the kids - thanks!

And the one just left of R.I.V.? I heard someone say 16, but I must say if you follow the bolts directly it's quite stiff, but fun.

Oh, and I was also confused by the order of these routes in the Wiki on the other side (King’s Kloof NE)

In the Wiki they are the order:
THREE WISE MEN (15) & ANGEL OF MERCY (17)
NARROW IS THE GATE (13) & STRAIGHT IS THE WAY (19/20)
SEEDS WE SOW(2PITCH) 12

but I was wondering, I though the hardest one was at the bottom end? Then the order would be (fltr)
SEEDS WE SOW(2PITCH) 12
THREE WISE MEN (15) & ANGEL OF MERCY (17)
NARROW IS THE GATE (13) & STRAIGHT IS THE WAY (19/20)

Hi Jan

To the right of "The Four Horsemen" is "The 10 Commandments" (10). The route to the right of that is still nameless as far as I know, graded at 11.

To the left of RIV is "The Hound of Heaven" (15), located just to the right of the tree, up the crack.

I agree, the order of the NE climbs doesn't seem right. I'll speak to Neil about that.

Happy climbing!

I agree with this order, if no one objects I'll update the wiki like this
