When you get to a T-junction turn right, pass through a dip and as the road starts to curve rightward at what could have been a T-junction you will see a vacant stand ahead of you, park here.
Walk upward slightly to the left on a fairly well defined path. You will see a band of rock to your right (presently undeveloped but open) and then on the left. The sport routes are on the left.
This is a joint ESSA and MSCA Magaliesberg event.
