The Steelpoort (low level)
We had had some thunderstorms here and there. Reports were looking alright for something nearby when I received the phone call asking if I would want to paddle the Steelpoort. The steel what? Oh yes, I had heard of it somewhere along the line. A tributary to the Olifants river. The Steelpoort looked long on the map and I wondered where we would be putting in. I had my doubts over this river, the only thing convincing me was that I was told the section was long, continuous and at one rapid someone on a previous trip had to be bagged out of a bad hole. Hmmm, that sold me. Brendan Bosman picked me up at 04:15 Saturday morning and away we went.
