Event header: Devil's Peak via Mowbray Ridge
Event date: Sunday, 15 May 2022
Event description:

Starting from Newlands Forest, we will walk up to the King's Block House. From there, walk and scramble up to the lookout hut where we will have a short break. Then we will continue to the top of Mowbray Ridge, cross the Knife Edge (called this because of the sheer drop on the one side) and then scramble up the Minor Peak. Then traverse around to the top of Devil's Peak. After a break, we will head down Devil's Peak towards the Saddle and descend via Newlands Ravine back to Newlands Forest. The hike will be about 6 hours, depending on the speed of the group. You need to be fit, have a head for heights and have basic scrambling abilities to do this hike.

This hike is also being advertised on Meetup, so book today because it will fill up quickly.
