Apostles Traverse Via Boskloof (B grade): Not your usual Apostles traverse! Along the Pipe Track past Corridor and Oudekraal, continuing all the way round the base of Grootkop. An amazing long traverse ending in Boskloof Ravine, with an interesting “B” exit on a thin ledge. A few old mossy cairns, but no path (apart from a maze of tahr tracks), so an old route that has not been done for a long time. Return via Suikerbossie. Convenor: Tony Heher 021 794 5730 or email@example.com (email booking preferred). Co convenor: Martyn Trainor (021 786 2605).
Flagstaff Hill, Simon’s Town: From Seaforth Sound to the summit of Swartkop (678m) along a 500m+ ridge overlooking False Bay (spectacular views!) and a steep descent to Smitswinkel Bay. Cars at both ends. Convenor: Denis le Jeune (082 822 8227 – preferably by SMS) from 2 June (please note booking date). Co convenor: Ivor Jardine (021 689 9031)
