Carslisehoek Pass is the pass between Rhodes and Tiffendel.

So the answer is no, not between Bidstone Pass and Carlisehoek Pass.

Same area though, but this place has a definite name.... :mwink:

JonW, that Danger's hoek road, does it lead through to anywhere (maybe Tiffendell?) or do you have to turn around back towards Tele Bridge?

Dangers Hoek road is off the Lundeans Nek Road.

It does not lead anywhere, you have to turn back to where you came from.

That looks like it could be between Harrismith and OliviersHoek Pass area, maybe Bezuidenhout's Pass?

The Mountain above the KLR (Kawasefi's bike) has a specific name. The same mountain appears on one of the floating banner pics at the top of the forum page.

Harrismith is the closest town.

Ok, it is the Tandjiesberg, behind Platberg, on the way to De Beers Pass north of Van Reenen.
