Create an itinerary including The Pinnacle Rock
Admire a naturally carved, free-standing rock buttress at The Pinnacle Rock, a metamorphic rock fringed with vegetation arising from a forest. An observation deck with metal railing allows you to take some good panoramic photos of this 30 m (98 ft) tall quartzite tower, set against the backdrop of a huge crack in the cliff behind. As you stand at the viewpoint, you'll observe this intriguing rock formation fringed with vegetation slightly from above. To the right of the column, you'll notice a small waterfall tumbling into the Ngwaritsane Stream. PutThe Pinnacle Rock into our Graskop journey site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
