A party of 17 met in Kirstenbosch Gardens at 7.45 and hiked up to the Contour path which was followed for approximately 10 minutes before turning off into a small gully.
After a few meters the party left the gully and proceeded to climb the buttress itself.
This involved numerous B grade pitches including an exposed 20 meter pitch where a rope was offered and accepted by some.
After a brief tea spot the party continued climbing to the top of the Buttress before shuffling through a cave system and descending down Skeleton Ravine.
Lunch was had at the foot of Skeleton before returning to the cars which were reached by 13.30.
