Bainskloof rock-hopper

The Bainskloof Rock-hopper is an annual, fun, MCSA outing involving bouldering and swimming up or down the Witte River in Bainskloof, between Tweede Tol and Eerste Tol (Second Toll and First Toll). Yes folks, tolling is as old as road-building despite what the current e-tolling controversy in Gauteng would suggest. The old pass‘s stonework and parapets are visible far above the gorge, which is lightly littered with car wrecks, a well-embedded engine block and an electricity transformer, amongst other souvenirs from modern civilisation – see the video.
