A spontaneous route change was the order of the day. With only Peter, Greg and I pitching up for the run the guys graciously agreed to use the opportunity to explore a new route that I have been wanting to try for some time.
We headed off up the jeep track and took the right fork, we carried on along the jeep track until we reached the path leading to the right, the one that heads in the direction of Clovelly ridge. Up Spitskop valley to cave peak, down echo valley as far as Willy’s then up again until we reached dog rock. At this point we made a right onto the Cliff top path and ran all the way along the cliff top until we reached Baily’s Kloof. At the junction on top of Baily’s we turned left and headed up Mimetes valley until we met with the jeep track once again. We then decided to take the shorter route down and headed for Junction Pool and home along the single track running parallel to the jeep track. Just short of 13km’s in 2h37, a great day, a great run.
