Sleeppad Hut

Sleeppad Hut is one of my favourite mountain huts. You can reach it in half a day by climbing Welbedacht Kloof and walking up the jeep track (sleeppad) on the shale band. From the hut you could visit Sneeukop, or just enjoy a magnificent sunset view down the valley towards Clanwilliam. The next day you descend into the valley and then up again towards Middelberg Huts. Finally, a sharp descent takes you down to Algeria Forest Station. There are several other huts in this part of the central Cederberg, and many interesting routes, but I haven't had a chance to visit them yet.
