Activity Description

The oldest, most direct, most popular way up the mountain. It is not a technical route (no scrambling or heights). It takes you up the north face of Table Mountain with views over the city and Devil’s Peak the whole way up. It is a steep climb, but is relatively straightforward. Perfect way to explore the mountain if pressed for time.

Hike takes approximately 3+ hours and finishes with the option of doing the Table Mountain Abseil.
