The Drakensberg is the highest mountain range in South Africa, with Thabana Ntlenyana the highest peak in the country at 3,482 mt. The Drakensberg also consists of various parts, including the Amphitheatre and pinnacle rocks such as the Devil's Tooth.
Until 1950, the Devil's Tooth was considered unclimbable, but on 11 August 1950 E. Scholes, D. Bell and P. Campbell formed a 'summit team' and completed the first successful summiting of the Devil's Tooth, still considered on of the 'Berg's toughest rock challenges.
