Starting from the N7 it heads north-east. It meets the R355 from the south-east and the two become co-signed. The routes cross into the Northern Cape before again diverging. Continuing north-east it reaches Pofadder after some 230 kilometres. Here it meets the N14 at a staggered junction. Leaving the town, it heads north to its terminus at Velloorsdrif Border Post at Onseepkans. In Namibia, the route continues as the C10.
