    This one?



    A gravel pass in KZN between Harrismith and Bergville - in the vicinity of the Sterkfontein Dam. The pass starts at 1349m ASL and summits at 1751m. It is 5,6 km long producing an ascent gradient of 1/14 making it very steep.

    We went up Bezuidenhouts a year ago coming from Geluksburg side and then you need a vehicle with high clearance. It was not an easy task but with some planning and rock moving we managed. After all the rain I suspect it to be worse.

    For Retiefs Pass you need permission and payment from the Owner. Do you have it?

    Is the pass on private land ?

    If it is then I wonder how it became known as a pass ?
