    Hey @Ryan, that first pic brought back lots of memories. We used to stay at the motel with those pyramid shaped bungalows each year on the way down to Marina beach on the south coast

    Looks flat and straight, certainly better than any south island roads.

    Looks can be deceiving.

    It is a 2-lane, freeway pass which rises from 1105m ASL to 1768m at the summit over a distance of 36,3 km, producing a climb of 663 vertcal meters, it nontheless results in a moderate gradient of 1/54 with the steepest sections around 1:20. Like the Kaaimans River & Hex River Passes, this pass produces a fair portion of South Africas trucking accidents. Sheer volume is no doubt the primary reason for the high rate of accidents, but the pass also has a major drop in altitude. When bad weather arrives, things can get masty with heavy snowfalls occurring during the winter cycle. The pass will be temporarily closed to traffic at times.

    Van Reenen's Pass, Drakensberg - Mountain Passes South Africa

    Like the article says, it is the traffic that's the main thing, particularly in bad weather. @ebf Never stayed at the Wigwam Motel myself but passed by often enough. Wasn't there a Trek garage with a big zebra outside it somewhere nearby?

    Not far off the gradient of the old west coast road. That is the flat bit on the way to west coast.

    Saw this car come round the corner with stuff on its roof secured by tied down straps. The guy had hooked the front strap to the front row hook but had tied it down waaaaay too hard and the strap had basically cut a jagged hole right down the middle of his lower grille.

    If that was a new hilux/triton/dmax/navara/ranger/etc it'd have crumpled the sill, twisted the chassis and the engine probably would've fallen out. Instant write off
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
