Great hike with gorgeous views, but is very steep in some spots, as in straight up some large boulders. Detour to Kloof Corner was worth it - amazing views. People with good fitness and some basic rock climbing skills will do fine. This hike should NEVER be done in wet conditions. .One other thing is that the trail can be difficult to follow so you should go slow enough to confirm you are following the yellow markings. From what I’ve read, most of the deaths on this hike have occurred either in bad weather conditions or when people accidentally went off the trail.

Definitely not an easy hike. I did this in the fog and rain with a guide and it was still quite pretty.

Fantastic hike although not easy. Not for those with a fear of heights. Go with a guide
