An impressive square red sandstone peak which is the second highest point in the remote and rugged Cedarberg range. Great area for high-grade multi-pitch rock climbing. The easiest route up this peak follows a steep gully into a water-worn, cavern-like chimney with polished walls about 8m high which ends in a scramble with a fixed chain at one point. Smooth and ice-chocked in winter. There is a cave at the bottom of main rock walls ("Spout Cave") where you can overnight. Well worth a visit for both climbers and hikers.

- Log #10301 - by Jacek Stankiewicz on June 20, 2001The surface of the summit 'table' is something that looks more like the moon. Wish we could have spent more time on top, as it was getting dark we had to rush down to camp. Awesome mountain!
