Hi everyone! 

I wish to do the mini traverse sometime this month, and looking for a buddy or two for safety and company - would anyone be keen to join? :) You can read a little bit about me on my profile and other than that shoot me a message if you want to spend 5 days in amazing scenery, sleeping in caves and getting blisters! 

Love, Beanie

Pretty open to suggestions but looking at doing it around the 20th. There's another hiker that's keen to go, so in a group of 3 we would definitely maximise on the enjoyment factor :) And could definitely talk dates and figure out when it would suit everybody.

Hi Beanie.
So I'm also quite keen. My planned Cockade-Organ Pipes hike for the weekend 19/20/21 Nov has fallen through as parties cancelled.

PM me so we can chat, if you like.
I'm based in Pretoria.

Regards.
Carl

Hi Beanie. I would have loved to join you, but this is unfortunately too close to our upcoming Shipwreck hike in Port Alfred.

The Drakensberg will forever be my favorite place to hike. If you need help planning your hike, more specifically the route, you are welcome to contact me.

Enjoy!!

Hi Drakie! Oh man, that's great thanks so much! When is your Shipwreck hike? Maybe the little group that wants to go can swing it to fit to your plans? But any which way, hope you have a great time in Port Alfred. x

Hi Beanie. We are leaving for Port Alfred on the 10th of Dec. I guess I won't be able to go to the mountains before next year.
Enjoy every moment and be safe please.

Hi everyone! 

​​​​​​Quick update: Stuart (another vertical endeavourer) and I are planning on doing a 4 day round route around cathedral Peak starting next week Thu and we would really feel more comfortable if there was a 3rd person!  Anyone keen to take a long weekend off and hit up the Berg with us? The route looks like this: Day 1: up organs pipe/the camel, sleep Roland's cave. Day2: cleft peak, across to Twins cave.Day3: Bell traverse, scramble up cathedral peak, sleep base of cathedral peak (tents). Day4: walk out. Be back at the hotel by lunch time and back in PTA by the evening. 
​​So some real stunning scenery and 2 nice nice caves! 

Hmu if you want to join our merry band of Berg wanderers. 

Xx​
