About this Hike

Morning hike Table Mountain via Kloof Corner ridge.

Table Mountain via Kloof Corner ridge hike starts at the lower cable car station and goes straight up the mountain to the Contour Path. Cross it and follow the trail up the ravine. After that, the path veers left. You see a cairn of rocks signaling the start of the Kloof Corner ridge hike. Follow the zigzags up the slope until you reach a gully. Then a short scramble will lead you to a rocky platform. Walk left along the ledge to a long chimney-crack where the first chain is hanging along a narrow crevice. That is to say that upper body strength is important to lift your body along the polished rock. Step up to a ledge and continue to a corner which leads onto the 11-inch chimneys. The second and final chain. This crack splits the rock running through the ridge. Getting through the passage involved standing on rocks wedged into the crack with nothing below them. Wriggle into the chimney and use the chain to propel yourselves altogether up and out the crack to an exposed shelf. Then, over the top of a platform, at this point, the view of the city is 3000 feet below! Continue over small rock steps and toward the main massif along the top of the ridge. The path darts around onto the West and traverses the length of Fountain Ledge simultaneously overlooking Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles Mountain range. Take a moment to catch your breath and soak in the natural beauty.

It’s important to get prepared due to the changing weather conditions. For that reason, dress appropriately in layers and, lastly, carry enough water to stay hydrated.

To conclude, Table Mountain via Kloof Corner Ridge hike is challenging and should therefore only be attempted by experienced hikers.
