Ascent Trip Report

Did some class 3 scrambling on (a variation of) the India Venster route up Table Mountain. Started 5pm, got back to the car 10.30pm. Coming down in the dark ("staircase", fastest way down the mountain) with just a small torch was difficult at times. Great scramble, next time I will bring more technical gear (and better shoes/boots) to explore some of the many climbing routes up to the top.
