Tackled the Swartberg Pass today.  Pretty awesome drive in that the chances of dying whilst on the drive are much higher than general driving in South Africa.  Absolute sheer drops with no guard rails on a dodgy road - just amazing.   

Thats the summit in the backround - almost there.

Pretty awesome drive, just watched some youtube videos about it. Is it by any chance one way or...?  :eek:

It's two way - sort of.  Bit of a squeeze in places.  Wouldn't be good being the passenger on the drop side.  I'm sure they'd be complaining.    :argh: :drive:
