Prince Alfred Hamlet, Western Cape
The pass is named after a species of euphorbia which covers the slopes of the Skurweberg (an Afrikaans word that directly translates to Rough mountain). Great photo opportunities from the viewpoint (safe parking) at the crest of the pass, overlooking colourful orchards, fields and dams, surrounded by rugged mountains, from where you can also see the road winding its way down from the pass, through beautiful, fairly uninhabited countryside.
