Subject: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS Saturday 25 May 2024: East Fort, Hout Bay

Happy Monday Trailers

This Saturday we're in the Republic of Hout Bay.

Route details
Starting from the parking by Velocity Gym, we warm up with a trot up the road to the start of the trail at East Fort. From the shortcut trail we join the jeep track until we get the split to the higher contour path where we may split into groups, those who don't like heights or don't want the steeper climb can continue along the jeep track.  We all end up at Blackburn Ravine and follow the contour path towards Chapmans Peak.  Along the single track we are treated to magnificent views (weather permitting) across the bay, note there is some mild exposure in sections adding to the adventure.
At approximately 7km groups can decide whether to summit Chapmans Peak or head down to Chapmans Peak drive, popping out by the "ticket checker".  From here we have a leg stretch on the tar (approx 4km) back to our cars.

Please remember this a social pack run led by committee with plenty of opportunities for photographs, and its important that we look out for each other. 

Rendezvous and Start Time

RV in the Velocity Gym parking area at the bottom of Chappies, please come 5 mins earlier to sign the register and for a run briefing, ready to start at 07:30 (sunrise-ish).

Inline image

Terrain and Distance

A mix of jeep track, single track and tar.  

Distance: +- 12 kms taking about 2h00 - 2h30mins for Main & Relaxed Group, longer if doing Chapmans Peak summit.

Walking group will be confirmed in Fridays mail.

*Please note adjustments to the route may be made whilst running depending on the group and weather conditions. Remember to check Friday's email just in case there are changes.

What to bring  

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top, rain jacket - weather dependent, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs


Have a great week!

FW: TABLE MOUNTAIN TRAILERS - circular route around that big rock called Devil's Peak

Hi all, tomorrow is ON

 

 

No wind, what there is should be East-ish, lots of mid-height cloud, hopefully it does not obscure the magnificent views from the upper contour, temperature just perfect for a mountain outing.

 

See you there, start 7:30…

 

No news about walkers, perhaps just arrive and see who is keen to walk?

Hi Trailers

 

This coming Saturday we will circle the big rock called Devil's Peak.

 

Rendezvous and start time

We meet for our briefing and sign the register ready to start running at 07:30

RV at Newlands Forest car park near the helicopters

 

 Route

https://www.plotaroute.com/route/944869?units=km

This plot-a-route is 'kind of' what we are doing, there are many variations.

 

We will go from Newlands, lots of up to the right, take the single track left up to the turnstile, Blockhouse, Mowbray (or… here is the first option to go around to Oppels and over the saddle)

After Mowbray, go up one more level to the Knife Edge T junction, turn right and do the upper contour to the mini saddle and perhaps meet the lower contour people.

Then an option is to summit The Devil, then down Newlands Ravine to the cars.

 

Expect about 10 tough km's and probably 3 hours.

 

Terrain and Distance

All sorts, minor exposure on Mowbray, could describe it as completely do-able and fantastic.

 

Walking Group to be confirmed on Friday.

 

What to bring  

Water, whistle, warm/windproof top, rain jacket - weather dependent, space blanket, ICE ID - either on your phone, bracelet/tag, card in your backpack.

Please make sure that you are carrying the right equipment, enough food and water.

ImportantPlease remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.  Please keep together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 

PS  Sorry no dogs allowed on VOB runs

 

 

See you there, call if any questions…
