The December Drakensberg Escarpment meet will take place from Friday 14 December to Tuesday 18 December. The plan is to do a round trip from Cathedral Peak Hotel: we’ll aim to go up the Tseketseke Pass, spend 2 nights on the Escarpment and come down via the Bell Traverse. We’ll spend the first night in the (very basic) Tseketseke Hut or in tents in the vicinity. Nights 2 and 3 will be spent in tents on the Escarpment (all weather gear and tents essential). The final night we hope to spend in Sherman’s Cave. The Bell Traverse is spectacular, winding as it does at high altitude around the Chessmen, Mitre, Horns, Bell and Cathedral. There are a couple of exposed sections and it can be quite windy. The route and duration of the trip could change if the weather is bad.
Numbers will be limited because of limited hut and cave space.
