I decided to hike up to the peak of Table Mountain this morning. I visited the peak two days ago using a cable car. While on the cable car, I saw hikers down below and immediately became jealous! So I planned an early morning hike. After a bit of research, I was certain that I wanted to hike Platteklip to the Table Mountain peak, but somewhere along the way I took a wrong turn and began a serious vertical ascent! The difficulty level increased exponentially, even to the point where this mountain hike became rock climbing using chains and staples embedded into the vertical face of the mountain. I met some gents along the way who accompanied me up the difficult parts of the mountain.
All in all it was a great adventure. If I lived here (rephrase – when I live here) I’ll be doing this hike many more times.
