Here's the full Mont Aux Sources Challenge route.

I personally despise the gully!  

The section from Witsieshoek to the car park is tedious and on a warm day can be torture on the way down again.

This is a short description based on my personal experience i.r.o. the Marble Baths - Leslies Pass Terrace Route. It may not prove too useful to others as it was originally transcribed to crystallize my own thoughts at the time. I trust it can help others to find the route.

GPS data for the trails from the Mnweni Cultural Centre to the Five Star Cave / Junction U13 area. Shows numerous variations in addition to the "middle" and "upper" routes (which are arguably the main routes for hikers) Note: there are many small variations upstream of Mlambu's Kraal which can be a bit confusing at times.

Humorous account of a group of inexperienced hikers that attempted the traverse between Organ Pipes and Mlambonja at Cathedral Peak, but, after ascending Organ Pipes Pass via The Camel, landed up descending the Thuthumi Ridge Route instead. A detailed trip report, with lots of pictures, that serves as a good reminder of the serious realities of hiking in the Drakensberg, especially for beginners.
