Frustration Gorge

Location: Deep wooded ravine right of the prominent rocky Frustration Buttress in orange Kloof 

Overview: There is no Frustration Ravine, only a Frustration Gully, and Frustration Gorge.  The Frustration is a waterfall to be avoided by an awkward narrow traverse ledge out left, then another narrow traverse back right a bit higher up.
Otherwise a pleasant and lovely wooded gorge.
