A lovely hike across the mountain, starting with a stroll along the Pipe Track and then making a rapid assent up the Three Firs route.  From the top, we crossed Slangolie ravine and made a detour to the subterranean cracks which shelter a number of ancient yellowood trees, and out onto a marvellous breakfast deck with a magnificent views of Camps Bay and Lion's Head below. From there we backtracked across Slangolie again and then headed across the Tabletop, descending to Kirstenbosch via Skeleton Gorge.
