The road to the summit. It’s called Regional road R103 and links the towns of Estcourt and Mooi River. The R103 route, which is the old national road between Johannesburg and Durban, is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. It is a fairly safe pass with an altitude gain of 279m to the summit. This puts it well above the snow line and this road does sometimes get closed to traffic if there have been heavy snowfalls.
