Slab Route B Rifberg Jonkershoek

Head onto the Contour Path from the gate side (I climbed up from the White Bridge but this looses too much altitude). You will see the obvious orange overhanging wall to the right of the grassy slabs. head onto the ridge leading up to this. A vague path can be found on the crest. ascend up to the base of the rock. There is a larger tree and bivy spot just above a waterfall which is dry in late summer. traverse left on a grassy ledge onto easy scramble terrain. scramble for about 100m picking the easiest line. You will reach a narrow ridge which looks down into the gully to the left.
A huge grass slope stretches up from here. Follow this all the way to past where is bends to the right and to the summit ridge.

I traversed to the summit and towards Bergrivier Nek from here.
