Pretty cool hike. Climbed the chain ladders up to the top and continued on to the falls. Lightning, rain and thunder rolled in and we had to book it back down as fast as we could. Lightning struck the rocks in front of us as we were heading back, the Baboons were out too that day. Steep in some places and very close to edges. If you’re afraid of heights maybe this ones not for you.

Amazing hike. The road to the car park is very (!!) rough. You won't make it in an average rental car. If you don't have a decent 4x4 with good tire clearance, get yourself a lift from the witsiehoek lodge (150 ZAR). they will also pick you up on the way back. We took the gully route and it was very doable for someone with a bit of hiking experience and decent footwear (no Nike free runs please). Not super steep, only a few loose rocks. But be prepared for about 30mins of cardio exercise and I wouldn't recommend doing the gully during the rain as it might get slippery and muddy.

really awesome hike. We went in summer and spent the night on the top. Took the ladders up and down, but going back to do the gully. There was no water at the top so we had to take some up. Luckily the weather was good and we didn't get pounded by the wind. So, so beautiful and green in Summer.

Amazing amazing hike - as good as it gets! The waterfall is rain based. The road goes all the way to the car park at the trailhead. Caution: It is a VERY rugged road! The elevation of the mountain creates its own weather system - be prepared for sudden rains and "white-outs" even when the weather prediction is for a clear sky. The lodge nearby (witsieshoek) offers lifts to the car park for R100. well worth it...just call them to confirm the still offer the service.

Absolutely stunning. We went up and down the gully route, which is quite a scramble, but is safe and well marked. The trail is very well maintained, including being paved for the first two miles.
