One additional rule for this round: DarkwingDave is not allowed submit his shots of Mponj Cave :P

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

I agree.

A cave with a braai area, fully stocked bar and even a DJ just wouldn't be fair play to the other entries... ;)

Since I took this picture from my sleeping bag I guess it could count as a cave comfort.

The story:

3 weeks ago, Thole and I decided to have a go at a lightweight trip to Upper Injisuthi Cave. After an hour delay at the Injisuthi entrance due to an over-sleeping gate keeper, we eventually got going at around 7:30am. We made Centenary Hut in around 3 hours, filled up water, and then took another 3 hours up Corner Pass via the superb Northern High Approach, before heading across the escarpment to UIC.
The last time I ascended the back of Trojan Wall was nearly 10 years ago and I can safely say that it has not gotten any easier!! Anyway, we stumbled into UIC 8.5hrs after leaving the car, clocking up 20km along the way. With the icy wind blowing, we were VERY happy to make it to this comfortable, well-sheltered cave. We then slept for about 12 hours before heading 24km back down in around 7hrs via Leslie's Pass, bagging a few khulus along the way (Injisuthi Dome, Mafadi & Lithobolong)

This was the view as I sat up in the morning:
