In 1986 I stopped there two a clock in the morning having lost my way with my cattle truck.
Then it belonged to a very friendly german family. It was a kind of trading post then. Today it is just a farm.

So, where am, I looking over the edge?

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

Yes - Eastern Cape indeed.
Not the loop between Kareedou and Joubertina, nor the stroompie that runs in the bottom of Bain's Kloof.

Ou ChrisL, here, there are no signs... only skidmarks. On the dirt, and perhaps in die onnebroek...  :eek7:

Possibly Grootrivierpoort?
I recall that last section down to the river had some rocks packed on the edge.

Antoniesberg Pass, through the Grootrivier poort.
Quite correct. This view is not the traditional outlook, but more back to the east.

Exact spot as shown below.
