This route to the top begins at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and scales the suburban face of our mountain, presenting the climber with fairy-tale views of the distant Hottentots Holland mountain range. Mike will ensure your safety on the scrambling pitches, using a rope if necessary. Once on top, the route can be extended to take in Maclear’s Beacon, the Tabletop, and a descent by Cableway. A circular route taking in the reservoirs before descending the forested Skeleton Gorge is also an option.
