Grootvlei Pass connects towns such as Kamieskroon on the inland plateau with those along the coastal belt such as Hondeklipbaai.

The pass is very steep in parts but, even though it is a gravel road, it is normally passable by all vehicles.

The pass is around 4 km in length and during that time drops 277 metres. In parts the gradient is 1:5.
