Southern Peninsula Classics is a collection of the most wonderful mountain adventures you will have the pleasure of experiencing on the southern Cape Peninsula – from Constantia Nek all the way down to the very tip of Cape Point.
It includes a selection of stunning hikes, from short, gentle ambles, to long, strenuous full day outings and everything between. It even has a two-day hike in the Cape of Good Hope Reserve. There are also a number of exciting scrambles up some of the more rocky areas and peaks, where sometimes a rope may be necessary for protection. And includes some of the more popular caves in the Kalk Bay mountains.
In addition, the book describes some of the easy to moderate rock climbs found along this part of the Table Mountain Chain, which are ideal if you are new to the climbing game and looking for climbs to sharpen your trad experience.
Besides the vast selection of hikes, scrambles and climbs, Southern Peninsula Classics is also a treasure trove of tales, facts and historical anecdotes, that will keep you fascinated from page to page.
Whether you are a visitor to the beautiful Cape Peninsula seeking a once-off classic experience, a local who wants to explore the best that the Southern Peninsula has to offer, or someone simply interested in the tales and rich tapestry that surrounds this unique and special peninsula at the tip of Africa, this is a book that should not be missed.
