Kloof Corner

Leader: Brian Lambourne 10 September 2017 Kloof Corner

On 31 August Brian Lambourne lead a party of 16 up the classic Kloof Corner route on Table Mountain. The route was first climbed by H. Bishop and S.B. Morgenrood in 1892 and is graded C. It commences 20 metres along the contour path from Kloof Corner with a short pitch where one pulls on a chain.┬áThere are two further pitches where a chain is used, the final one being the famous “11 inch” crack where it was necessary to haul packs. A rope was used on the three chain pitches and a fourth pitch that required a move that was tricky and exposed. At the top of Kloof Corner the party split into two with half continuing to the top and descending by cable car whilst the other half descended via India Venster.
