De Bos | Elands River

De Bos | Elands River

Please note that the access is sensitive & thus the real location is not given. Don’t follow your GPS. It’s off the Elands River road, but it is not easy to get to, basically you will need somebody who knows the way to take you there.


Quartzite & sandstone. Main Slab is a slab about 12m high. There are 12 sport lines. Very limited potential for new lines at Main Slab. There is tons of other rock around. 5 minutes.

The routes were bolted by Hermie Venter while he was working as a volunteer at De Bos. De Bos is evangelical Christian youth camp.



De Bos is on private property, it is quite difficult to find & to get too. There are at least 5 locked gates between the road & the campsite. Basically you will need to make arrangements to go there & go with somebody who has access. For now access attempts can be arranged via marshall@qsafrica.co.za.
