    Default Bezuidenhout's Pass

    Can anyone tell me how to get to this pass?
    How long is it?
    Is it suitable for a softroader up or down?
    Must I pack my spade?
    My technology has not yet extended to a GPS, so I would appreciate a few "lefts and rights" and land marks.

    Default I did it:)

    I jsut did this pass on Saturday

    Very very very very very very lekker

    Its not suitable for a softroader (or platcar) for the reason that there are about 10-15 humps (that prevent rainwater washing the road away) where ground clearance is needed. In the dry a 4x2 is no problem either. In the wet, it could be good fun

    Will post some pics tomorrow

    P.S. Spade will not help you The whole road is a bit more than rocky, but a spade you will not need
