The Kromrivier BEAST – 6 Peak Traverse
This is an event for Cederberg and Mountain lovers.
For the discerning trail runner who enjoys adventure and wilderness.
You need to be self-sufficient,
there is no pampering other than of endless panoramic views.
You will be the first Trail runner to enjoy this brand new route– a skyline trail around the amphitheater of the Kromrivier Valley.
The highest point of the trail is Donkerkloof Peak is at 1750 metres. Looking north you can see Sneeuberg, the highest summit in the Cederberg.
The route traverses 6 Peaks, and each must be reached within a Cut off time, or you will be short coursed down the Valley.
But, we are generous and if you can hike fast, maintaining a reasonable tempo, you will enjoy a thrilling day out.
The total distance is 45km, and the elevation gain a very pleasant 2200 metres – we start at 1000 m, at Kromrivier Farm.
The rock formations are ancient, seldom viewed, with a kaleidoscope of colours, shapes and features. Cracks, caves, craters!
