I got picked up where the white cross is in the middle of the map screen shot below.. The rescue was slightly higher up nearer the rock band.
Mnweni Pass is in the lower portion of the shot.


I was doing the rescue.. After sending the two hikers up to the chopper, the chopper flew back to MCC and I moved downhill to await my pick-up.

@Serious Tribe,

Do you perhaps have the gps track for Ledges pass? It seems straightforward enough, but in thick mist or rain a track helps a lot :-)

Sorry Sabine. Someone with one of those gadgets is going to have to log a 'track download' - there was no tech.

Thought you might all be interested in how we planned the trip.

After ST2 had look down the pass and though it might go, it was few years before we actually were able to do it.  In the planning, I recalled an image I had taken in 2012 from an escarpment trip and thought it might be useful to get an idea of the what the gradient looked like from a different angle.  Using GE side by side also helped to give us the view that it would work.

We have a hike planned in March and we’re thinking of doing Ledgers Pass as a new thing to do in the Mnweni area for us

Anyone have a gps track of the pass yet? 

Thanks in advance

Hi Grandeur,

I have a track, created by my Fenix 3 and it lost signal in places so the tracks looks a bit like spaghetti, but  the upper portion is mostly fine, it's mostly atthe bottom near the Mnweni river that it went haywire.

PM me if you want a copy.
