Mountaineering in Cape Town. Journey to the Summit: Embark on a Mountaineering Expedition in Cape Town
Central to the life of Cape Town is its dominant feature - Table Mountain. It influences the weather, it’s the first thing people see when they arrive in Cape Town, by sky, sea or road and its beauty brings people flocking to the city from all over the world. It also provides many of Cape Town’s citizens with an adventure playground that would be hard to beat. Table Mountain provides spectacular hiking and climbing. Speak to any local ‘mountain person’ and they will tell you that even if you spent every weekend of your life on the “hill” you wouldn’t get to know all the routes.
Table Mountain’s rugged geology encourages a more hardcore type of hiking (B & C grade scrambles) and traditional climbing. The mountain is also infamous for its changeable weather and qualified mountain guides, many of whom have grown up on the slopes of Table Mountain, are advisable. They will assess you and provide an experience that is challenging without being dangerous and assist you over treacherous terrain.
