Thank you Coeta, it may be either mid april (that would be rather overcrowded upthere in the Berg at that time :laugh: ) or mid october, it depends of one of us.
Does she lives in Central Berg (castle champagne), won't that be a little too far away from Sentinel car park and Harrismith ?

Shuttle service or lifts Cathedral peak to chain ladders

Hi all
We want to do a mini traverse from Chain Ladders to Cathedral peak starting next Wednesday morning.
Is anyone offering a shuttle service, scheduled or otherwise? We tried Amphitheatre backpackers but they do not shuttle, you must join a hike (and pay full price) to get the lift.
Preferably we would like to leave the car at Cathedral, but we are open to ideas. There are just two of us.

Good Evening Geordie

When I did the GT a few years ago I spoke to Lucio from Karma Backpackers, he was more than willing to assist.

have a chat with them and see whether they can assist, they have the most incredible breakfast btw!

A couple of years ago we used the Champagne Coach and Shuttle Service (back then called Golf Got You): www.csch.co.za/ .
They handled our Pretoria - mini traverse - back to Pretoria transport for a large group and did an excellent job. Worked out cheaper than driving ourselves. They had to drop us at Witsieshoek Mountain Resort, though, due to the condition of the road. Since then the road has been improved, so maybe they can go to the car park now.

Thanks Herman,

I've contacted both lily(private) and Fiona (golf got you) but there prices are not viable for a group of three/four people. Looks like we will be heading out to Ledgars cave from sentinel car park and then back again. Seems like easier navigation than finding lifts.

Planning a Hike in June from Sentinel CP to Cathedral , we are four in the group hiking,  and our approach is to meet up at Cathedral Peak Hotel 1 day Prior leave a car and take another to Sentinel CP traveling in two cars from different locations, After the Hike we'll collect the Sentinel CP Vehicle and depending on our fatigue we may opt for a night at Witsies...... Hiking all the way to ledgers and back to CP seems so incomplete.
