I had looked in awe at Kompasberg, the highest mountain in the Karoo, for far too long. So in early summer 2015 on a perfect day, together with a few friends, we decided to do it. Halfway up, looking back, this is what I saw in my mind’s eye. It stuck. Back in the studio my memory kicked in, and I put this down for posterity.
