After having to cancel the previous attempt at this meet we finally managed to reach Klaasenskop, albeit via the intended descent route because of the bad weather conditions – this winter has been challenging! Six intrepid hikers set out at 7:30am with rain forecast but nevertheless with high hopes for some adventure. We were rewarded with interesting lighting effects including a rainbow, an ascent of the Camel by one of the ‘boulder’ members of the party and a 15 minute shower (of rain)! The wet lichened rocks required great care and provided an additional element of adventure. Needless to say we were down by 11:30am, feeling suitably refreshed and glad that we had forgone that extra time in bed for an experience only a few could enjoy!
