BKWMorning Stroll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 6, 2015


I was in town for a few days so I strolled up Platteklip Gorge then over to the Beacon. I got up the gorge, which is apparently 2300 feet, in one hour. So it's an excellent trail for gaining elevation quickly. The views were top notch, as were the flora and fauna.

mrchad9Platteklip Gorge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2009


First trip in April 2008, up Platteklip Gorge just down the road from the cable car. Planned to ride the car down but wind closed it- hiked down. Bright and sunny when I started but wind and fog enveloped before I made it over to the true highpoint.

Second outing in October 2009 with Devil's Peak. Tried for an hour to get up from the saddle. Couldn't find a good route so followed the trail down and up Platteklip again.

Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2008


Climbed it via the "India window". That's what it was called, don't know any other names. It was a more adventurous route for sure.

A window finally opened after 4 days of waiting in Cape Town. About 1.5 hours up to trail junction despite being way out of shape and breathing nasty fumes downtown for 10 days. Beautiful place with neat vegetation.

I'm actually from SA but moved to the states in 92, a beautiful day hike. Some of the best oceanic cliff views around. Truly Breathtaking!

Easy climb on a beautiful day. The most beautiful place on earth? Earlier in the week, it was too rainy/cloudy to go to the summit, so I did a longer hike starting at the Platteklip Gorge trailhead around the side of the mountatin to Constantia Nek and then to my friends house in Hout Bay.

Summited to kick off a classic 30+ km traverse of the higher peaks on the Cape Peninsula from the University of Cape Town to Kalk Bay. A yearly event with the UCT MSC and a very rewarding hike with truly unique views, including two oceans.
