You can include the Helskloof pass at S28 47.036 E17 27.308 in the Richtersveld community conservancy. A great route.

Input please

Do you think this index should be rearranged like so: Country\Province\Alphabetic?
or just keep it simply alphabetic like it is now?

I would like to see per province. Makes it easier to check up when one start with ideas when planning a route to a particular area.

How about having a sticky thread for each province & an all-inclusive alphabetical list

Only saw this now,

I prefer the provincial...simple reason, I plan a ride in an area, and normally search from that down.

Edit: Sorry, only saw isiTututu's link  :thumleft:

Thanks for this file - it must have been a lot of work!
The waypoints load into MapSorce and show the positions of the passes so I think that there will be no advantage to change the format.
Should we send new data to the Forum, or as a personal message to LuckyStriker?
