It was realllllly windy but Kyle assured it would be safe, just a bit challenging. I was a bit nervous but I’m so glad I went, it was FANTASTIC. Expect some fairly strenuous climbing but nothing anyone with a normal level of fitness can’t handle. The views all the way up are amazing but nothing beats the view from the top - absolutely breathtaking. Kyle was a very friendly guide who made us feel safe. The rooibos tea and snacks in the cafe were a great touch.

We’ve had Lance as our tour guide. He was amazing! He was very helpful for those who were struggling with the pace during our hike on a very hot day in February. He took care of the whole group and we arrived exactly on time at the sunset spot on the mountain. He had coffee/tea for everyone and it was all in all a very memorable hike. Definitely would recommend this!

This was an excellent hike, not too difficult and Lance the guide was brilliant. Communication was excellent as we had touch & go weather during the day. So glad I got the chance to climb up and was just the best experience. If you want to get a stunning view and have a challenge, do this hike!
