Great report Merv

That was by far the most amazing hike I’ve ever done. Such an emotional rollercoaster. 

Well done to all invloved. 

Hope to see you on the mountain again soon.

Not great... I think its the worst I remember it and I wasn't even driving this time.
Plenty potholes, and a couple sections where high clearance is handy, but with care you'll get there fine with any car

Hey VE Family,

Wondering if anybody can assist. Does anybody know anything about Fergy's Cave? I spoke to the park official today asking her if Fergy's Cave was open to overnight in, she advised me that it has been closed but didn't elaborate any further on why and if it is totally impossible to overnight there. Did anybody recently overnight there? Does anybody know of any alternative spots around Fergy's Cave which can serve as a camping spot?

Thanx

Henk

There are a couple of rock paintings in the cave which is why you are not allowed to overnight . There is another cave a little further upstream from Fergys upstream, Dead dog cave. PM me  will give you all the details.I was a Injasuthi yesterday camping where you hiking  ?

That would be amazing @Diverian, I'll send you a PM now. 

The actual aim of the trip in to do Corners Pass, haven't been up there before and also to overnight in UIC which I also havent done before. The sideline trip would be to take some friend to Mafadi as a blacklist item for them.

Hi Berg experts

I spotted this video, and it looks amazing.
A little help please.

www.hikingsouthafrica.co.za/video-mafadi-3452/

Is that from/to Injasuthi?
Pass, is that Corner Pass where they are using the rope to help each other up?
Cave shot, which cave?

Cheers
Vaughn

Hi Vaughn.

Yes, their approach is from Injasuthi via Centenary Hut. And yes, it's Corner Pass, which you can do without a rope, though a rope will help for the final scramble. A rope will also help, and is probably advisable, if you take the Northern High Approach, which has some scrambles that could be a little risky with packs on. The cave is Upper Injasuthi / Injasuthi Summit Cave.
