Passes of the Drakensberg

I don't see Elandshoek, Masubasuba, Amakhela or Minaret, and I haven't given it much thought yet. Are you just not adding these because you have heard they have been done?
If you have a look at the attachment sheet 1 you'll see a list of 114 passes. If any are missing please let me know. It's full of funny passes like Uklebe etc.
The list posted was purely a list of passes that I am not 100% sure of VE members having not done - e.g. I knew you had done Elandshoek, so I excluded it. I know Hobbit has done Masubabsuba, I believe ST and Stijn have both done Amakhela and Minaret etc.
- The 2 middle Knuckles Passes (i.e. there is one north of the north Knuckle, one between each of the Knuckles and one south of the South Knuckle, 4 in total).
Also, isn't there an alternative Cockade Pass gully? Mzimude Pass can arguably be split into 4 passes, 3 south gullies and the north pass (although this raises the highly subjective question of when an alternative pass top constitutes a different pass).

Roughly what I was thinking when I posted - as if you need additional work put on your plate. I don't think there's any kind of a rush for this to be done, just one for the future...
Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.
