Thanks to Johan Groeneveld for adding this peak.

A multitude of climbing routes, from easy scrambling to high-grade multi-pitch rock climbing with many overhangs. The fantastic weathering of the red sandstone makes this range unique, with grotesque shapes rising from every outcrop. Features of Wolfberg are the Valley of the Red Gods (a field of giant weathered blocks), the Cracks (contorted narrow passages that squeeze through the rock face to the summit) and the Arch (a perfect 10 m high loose-standing arch).

    A wonderful experience with lots to explore in the cracks. An abseil off the Wolfberg arch is thrilling.
