Mini Hike Reports

10 Nov 2015 14:08 #65732 by Smurfatefrog
The thinking behind this thread is that a lot of you don't have time to write lengthy reports and sort through pics matching the report, and so you don't post anything about a recent trip.

So this thread can be used for any mini reports, even if its "We did a day hike to the Sphinx on Saturday, here are a couple pictures from it"

I agree, awesome Idea!!

As the fact is, all of my hikes in berg so far are Day hikes. Next year is the year to change that.

I have got some really good pics on my day hikes that I will soon enough do small write ups and add pics.

Sterkhorn hike this weekend, and tent at Blind Man's Corner.
Unfortunately only one of the group made it to the summit, because of the weather, but still an enjoyable hike.

The path is very eroded in places.

Some friends and I did a circular route on the contour path in Cathedral Peak. The plan was to go up Cockade, sleep in Twins, and then descend Mlambonja, but unfortunately some of the group weren't fit enough.

The lower Mlambonja Valley:

Camp the next morning, where the paths coming from Cockade and Mlambonja meet (night fell before we could make Cockade the previous day):

Spent the weekend at Hlalanathi and got to do the Tugela Gorge hike on Saturday morning - the Tugela is very dry! Moody clouds made for some great views of the amphitheatre anyway. Also did a short run along the All Out Adventures singletrack on Sunday morning.

Btw, the R74 road past Sterkfontein Dam has a very rocky and bumpy gravel detour road in place now. We chose to take Van Reenens on the way home instead.

JonWells, Sheldon & myself spent a few days exploring the Hidden Valley

Hiked in at night to camp at Puffadder rock, awesome spot with space for 100s of tents
