You park at the normal car park on the south side of Ou Kaapse Weg. Then follow the signs to Steenberg Peak. Just before you get to the top, there are some boulders on your right (about 30m from the path - the bouldering area is part of Topside and is called The Turtle). Directly adjacent to the boulders, follow the small path left over the edge (going towards the Constantiaberg aerial). When you get to a big ledge, follow this right, then follow the cairns down to the crag.
There's no point being pessimistic, because it probably won't work

Sounds easy but it aint.
theres boulders and big ledges everwhere. My advice would be don't be tempted to turn left too early. Go almost to the top before looking left. i could be wrong, only been there once and got frikken lost and went on some crazy unplanned solo mission. was nice once it was over though.

After heading up the steep stone steps, take the first path left. Follow this for around 10 min or so. Lookout for the (Turtle) boulders on the right, they are the first 'climbable' boulders to be found. Then follow Guys directions.
