Lions Head 

 

Lions Head is extremely popular amongst locals and tourists alike as it is a relatively easy route for all age groups and all fitness levels. It can be a short walk, or you can opt for a longer route depending on your preference. Some sections have a short ladder or ropes, and some may opt out of this and go the longer, less congested route. The terrain itself is not very tricky or technical. At the top are views of the entire city and Atlantic Seaboard and it is therefore a truly unforgettable experience.

India Venster

India Venster is a route for the more daring adventurer as it is quite an intricate route. It offers some areas of scrambling and steep climbing and it is recommended that you are reasonably fit. For this route you should definitely be comfortable with heights as there are areas that are quite exposed, the views are uninterrupted and absolutely breathtaking and as always; it is so well worth the climb. We hike up and take the cable car down. If the cable car is closed due to strong wind, we have to hike back down via Platteklip Gorge

Platteklip Gorge

 

Platteklip Gorge is one of the most popular routes and it can therefore be quite congested at times. Despite it being fairly short in terms of distance, it can take up to 2 hours to make your way to the top as it is quite demanding in elevation. Bring lots of water and sun protection as it can be very exposed depending on the time of day. This is quite popular with both locals and tourists alike and there is always friendly banter and jovial remarks. Once you have reached the top you can either take a short break before making your way down. We hike up and take the cable car down. If the cable car is closed due to strong wind, we have to hike back down.
