I am leading an MCSA KZN hike that weekend.

It is a reasonably tough (by MCSA standards, not VE standards) 4 day hike up Nguza Pass down South Saddle Pass.

I seem to recall that Viking is also leading an MCSA hike that weekend - not sure of the details though.

I actually don't have a MCSA hike that weekend but do have some plans in the same area as Ghaz.

Checked the meet sheet again - it's Colin McCoy leading a team that weekend. Not sure why I thought it was Carl/Viking. Colin's is a difficulty 3 in the Southern Berg - no further info provided.

All of them? In a day?
I'd settle for just ticking off WIT!

It will definitely require packing your favourite pair of underwear. Preferably worn on the outside of a pair of long lyrca leggings.

I have a few sneaky plans and will bring along a few pegs to help out when the underwear lets me down, but I think you can get (safely) to the summit of WIT from the escarpment. Middle Trip then follows easily, so it will then just be a case of being able to knock off the first one quick enough to have time for Eastern Trip.

At the moment, it is just Neil Margetts and I who will be climbing, so welcome to join in.

@AndrewP

Well now! Triplet traverse with a new route/variation? This will be rather epic!

I'd be lying if I said that I'd never thought of giving this a go one-day but unfortunately for me, for various reasons, that one-day is not now. Add to that the fact that a party of two is probably the optimal number for an attempt like this and that I have committed to having a go at Mponjwane, the list of excuses starts to grow! :lol:
But thank-you for the offer.

All the very best of luck and I look forward to my write-up paling in comparison to the one that follows this adventure!

Hi Andrew. What would be the dates and the plan of that hike?

Hi guys,

We are a group of 2 guys doing a hike in the Mnweni Area next weekend. Our intended route is as follows:

Day 1: Sleep over at MCC (Thursday 3 March)
Day 2: MCC to Fangs Valley pitching tents at the waterfall
Day 3: Up Fangs Pass to Ledgers Cave
Day 4: Down Mnweni pass back to MCC

Any takers? If you're interested, please feel free to pm me.

Cheers :hike: :)
