It is a traverse of the Drakensberg that starts from the Sentinel Car Park perimeter fence and then stops at the Bushman’s Nek Border Post perimeter fence. Various checkpoints have to be visited along the way. These include:

• The Chain Ladders
• Mont-aux-Sources summit (3282m)
• Cleft Peak summit (3277m)
• Champagne Castle summit (3377m)
• Mafadi summit (3451m)
• Giant’s Castle summit (3314m)
• Thabana Ntlenyana summit (3482m)
• Thomathu Pass must be used to descend to Bushman’s Nek

The only other rules are that it needs to be entirely self-supported (i.e. no seconds, food caches or resupplies) and entirely on foot. GPS is allowed.
