Hi Firefish,

I've got a reliable track for Mlambonja pass. Send me a PM with your details and I'll send it to you.

Cheers

Here you go: www.movescount.com/moves/move101694019 - note that we lost the path for about 200m at the 2.8km mark of that track - take care in that section as there are a few false paths heading into the bush. It should be fine coming up.

You should be able to download the GPS track from there. Otherwise, drop me a PM and I can send a GPX file.

Shortly after you start going up the river, after leaving the contour path from One tree hill's side, the path makes a zig-zag up the side of the river. If you follow this you will find a clear path on top. It seemed to go in the wrong direction so we left it and ended up rock hopping for quite some time before finding the path again. Coming back down it is much easier to follow the correct path. The attached photo is my attempt to indicate this zig-zag on my GPS track plot.

Interesting. If I recall we hiked a short bit on the river before heading up onto the path. Pretty similar but no real zig zag. Academic anyway :)

Yup, campsite is 10 to 15m away from the river, on the south bank

Question for those been up and down the pass recently - how badly burned up is the area around the path from the hotel?

I can only comment to a certain degree, yesterday I ran to the zig zags by Neptune pools and while there has been so small section burnt very close the the hotel the balance of that 5k stretch is not burnt at all, and for the better part that I can remember from the day before I don't recall the upper section above those zigzags not been burnt, however the north side of one tree hill ridge has been burnt extensively just about all the way from there up to Cathedral peak, and the areas around Cathedral peak is fairly burnt as well

From the sight of Mlambonja pass that I did get the top of the pass is burnt only as far down as about the saddle that heads over to twins cave, I don't think the rest of the pass is burnt, as the south side of one tree hill and heading towards the pass looked un-burnt.

Hi Guys

Does anybody have a gpsĀ waypoint for a good flat camping/tenting area on the escarpment behind Mlambonja that can accommodate about 5 tents?

If I recall there is a good spot near the head of the Kwakwatsi but don't want to wander too far from the top of Mlambonja because we will be descending the following day.

Any info would be appreciated.
