good morning Trailers

This coming Saturday we are starting from Newlands at 6:30, and going UP.

We make our way UP to the Blockhouse, then UP Mowbray Ridge (a little bit of exposure to heights, but perfectly do-able)
We then go UP, ignoring the 580m traverse path to the right, and stop for a breather at the junction of the 700m traverse and the Knife Edge
Carefully ignoring the Knife Edge path, we go right along the 700m traverse all the way to the summit of Devil's Peak
Then it is back down to the saddle and a the last UP to the top of Newlands Ravine, and straight down to the cars

Here are some links with the details, which basically says we will do 9.3km, go UP over 1000m, and burn 1247 kcal's

so in summary it is not much distance, but will be tough with lots of UP, and will take a bit of time
The views from the 700m traverse are seriously impressive

There will be a relaxed group which will explore Newlands Forest and surrounds


Water, Whistle, Warm/windproof/rain top, ICE information and a snack, and a few bucks for the car guard
… and some cold beers for after


This is a pack run with regular regroups, and we will split into speed groups with leaders and sweeps on the morning. 

Please remember to look behind you at every turn in the route to make sure the people behind you see which way you are going.   
Leaders of each group will ensure that no-one is left behind. Please keep the groups together and ensure that no-one is left on their own. 


Please note that  K-Way VOB club rules do not permit dogs on our runs.

Any questions, please phone, email, or WhatsApp me
