Lazy Day Crag in the Waterberg

A weekend of excellent weather, brilliant sends and great attendance was the name of the game at the newly discovered “Lazy day Crag” in the Waterberg.

The crag is located at Renosterpoort Farm owned run and loved by the Leroux family and is hidden in the forested edge of the upper reaches of the mighty Mokolo river. The lack of cell signal made for some challenging route finding but, late comers on Friday evening were met by friendly faces and a roaring bonfire at Dassie camp our home for the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday showed some High Psyche with 10 new routes being established and some great sending on old routes, Sarel and Roger alone taking down 4 and well done to Kat, Jess, Karine, Mel and Bennie for opening their first trad routes. Deep water soloing took a surprising second place in the activities and it was agreed that some means of floatation to get on the wall with dry shoes is the way forward well done to Sarel and Karine for finding a new way up. Bronze on the Podium was some impressive Hiking and route finding By Lesedi and Motsei with a possible variation and link up of two existing hiking routes.

All in all the weekend was a resounding success, we hope to see more people enjoying this secluded and beautiful area.
