Great views. Narrow path through bushes on the first half. Then level, but all jagged rocks. Very rough for your feet. Then very steep with jagged and loose rocks, not pleasant at all. We stopped about 2/3 of the way up overlooking the harbor so that we could catch the other views. The rest of the way to the summit was even steeper and extremely windy. If the second half had had more switchbacks and was not all jagged rocks, the trail would have been greatly improved.

What you miss with just hiking Plattenklip is that none of your photo's have the spectacular Table Mountain in them. Plus I would argue the overall views from Devil's Peak are better anyway. The 1st half to the Saddle is easier, with the 2nd half being steeper and with larger step ups. There is also a section of loose stones/rocks that could be ankle turners. Take plenty of water and sunscreen as shade is limited througout - although we did have a later than intended start time. If you don't have a vehicle, Uber can do drop off and pick up atbthe start from Tafelberg Rd start point. Just make sure the driver has the right drop off destination as ours relocated to loeer down the hill. Ignore the distance, forgot tomstop recording before returning to CBD.

Really fun ascent, not to strenuous, much more secluded than other hikes in the area. Great views of the entire cape area, the entire hike to the top is out of view of the city, nice to get away.
