Thanks to Jurie Joubert for adding this peak.

This is a beautiful sandstone height that towers over the lovely Boland village named Wellington. This peak is also exposed to very harsh elements all year round with snow and ice that can be expected starting May and lasting until beginning of October. It is really a unexplored gem with great multi-pitch trad possibilities!

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Groot Wellington Sneeukop in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    Ruan Neethling and I climbed up Tierkloof on Saturday with HEAVY packs, slept over (in a tent) right at the top and went back via Bobbejaanskloof. Very strenuous, but an unbelievable experience!...
