Ice cold day on the mountain - Minor Ridge, Knife Edge, Devil's Peak + Newlands Ravine. Some great new growth after the fire, saw some Himalayan goats that survived the cull, knees completely poked but the climbs are worth it.

It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

Kiff day on the mountain - up Kasteelpoort, down Woodhead to Hout Bay and Llandudno. Cool story - the series of 4 interconnected dams ontop of the mountain concentrate down Woodhead Ravine where the okes had slaves dig a 800m tunnel through the mountain to a ravine over Camps Bay which filled a reservoir, the tunnel was commissioned in 1891 and many slaves died etc. SANParks stopped us from exploring the tunnel today but we'll try again next week.

I really use to hike a lot, but nowadays cars don't stop for hikers anymore.

Which turns me into a walker anyway, and I actually like hiking. :thumleft:

Did a Cederberg weekend hike last weekend. Did the Wolfberg Cracks and overnight at Wolfberg Arch. Some snow and ice on the higher areas.

I hiked up to Wolfberg Arch late in April and also stayed over - but without a tent, stupidly. It drizzled the whole night, and the wind stormed from sundown until it grew somewhat lighter a few hours later (can't say "sun up" because the sun didn't shine until halfway down the mountain). Can't wait to hike up there again :imaposer:

Next time I'd like to climb up Wolfberg Cracks.

Learned a valuable lesson on the mountain today - always be prepared. Took 4hrs to descend what took 2hrs to ascend - storm moved in 100m from the summit which ended up with zero viz, had to freeclimb and Bushwhack our way down as we couldn't find routes, had an epic bolemakiesie platz a few metres from a cliff face, still a lekker day out.
