On we go with our Thirteen Peak Journey… and another Peak and another Day. At this stage all the peaks we did became our favourite… But Suther Peak stands out as one that we absolutely loved and crushed!!!

An Early Start and a Happy Finish…

I have to say, I can’t understand why this isn’t one of Cape Town’s favourite hikes… it is challenging, but not too challenging… its vertical, but so are all the other peaks… this is a fabulous hike and a beautiful day certainly helped.

It looks so much more daunting than it is, it is indeed really climbable.
