Oukloof Pass (P0584)

 

The Oukloof Pass is a basic gravel farm style road running through the Nuweveld Mountains on the North/South axis about 40 km SSE of Fraserburg in the Northern Cape. It’s just under 9km in length and climbs 340m in altitude to summit at 1536m ASL. The average gradients are a comfortable 1:26 with the steepest bits being at 1:7 – The pass is subject to snow in winter and can be very dangerous during heavy rain as the pass makes use of a river course and has no bridges.
