Does anyone have names/grades for these bolted routes?

I counted 8 fully bolted, and 4 trad with single top anchors, all stainless u-bolts in pretty good condition on bomber granite.

Not long at all, but nice climbing...

Jacques Cronje might know, I think he hangs out there a lot. You can go look for him at spiders during the weekday evenings.

Hoezit!
The routes were bolted about 8 years ago by a climber from the brits climbing club.i met him at one stage and he said that he did not bother to name and record the routes.he reconed i could rename and grade them in my guiode to secret garden.I dont use grades in the guide any more and it feels wrong to name another mans thing...route.haha!cheers!

hahaha Jacques you crack me up dude. Nice guide, but its a bit disappointing that you did not include a photo of that crack you said you go up feet first :shock:

Oh and I hate to be the nit picker, but Brits is in North West (not Limpopo) and it is West of Pretoria, not North :eye:

Not to discourage anyone from visiting the area but if I remember correctly a number of years ago there was a nasty crime that took place in this area to a climber and his girlfriend. Be careful and go in groups.

Also I remember seeing a lot of chipping and scraping of the rock.

Be Safe.
