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



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…
