About The Main Wall:

The information is exactly the same as for the Cave Area. These are just two different crags on the same piece of land. Enjoy and do it safely people...
Nearest town or city: Oudtshoorn
Directions: Oudtshoorn is about a 6 hour drive from Cape Town. Quickest is to take the N2 highway to George and then take the N12 North for about 60km to Oudtshoorn. The best drive though is through Montagu and then along the route 62. In Oudtshoorn take the R328 North to the Cango Caves, this is well marked. After about 27km, take the left turnoff labelled "Swartberg Pass". Drive 5km and turn right to De Hoek, it is well signposted.
