Great scramble up Skeleton Gorge from Kirstenbosch with ladders but longer than planned. Hiked past reservoirs and eventually reached summit. Extensive views over Cape Town. Took cableway back down.

Surprised that there is no water in the lake on top of the mountain. Trail is stunning as always

Highly recommended for anyone that wants to challenge themselves. We picked a day when it was overcast and windy up on the mountain
