Slow intermediate. This is a very popular route especially for the young and fit so we will be off to an early start to beat most of the crowds. We will be taking the staples and ladders route – there are ladders on the bypass route too so no point in taking that one

Meet us to start walking at 6am. Find us at the boom where the coffee vendors stand on weekends along Signal Hill Rd. What to bring: friends, water, snacks, layer clothing, sturdy footwear, torches. R20 guest fee applies if not a member of Meridian Hiking Club. Queries – Whatsapp or SMS only please.
