Maybe the most wonderful sunset i ever saw.
Go early to have a nice place, get a cot, because the wind is there too.

And if you go earlier than the sunset get some food and water, there is no place out there to buy anything :)

Good alternative for Table mountain because you have to walk to the top by yourself. The views are spectecular. The climb itself is best done in the early morning hours because its rather cold than.

We thought we had enough time, but to really enjoy it and not be rushed, take more time than what we were told (two hours) to climb all the way to the top!

climbing this nearly killed me, I am a young women (not very active) but after seeing it from my hotel window everyday thought i would give it a try. took around an hour and a half to get to the top, just in time for sunset. and my gosh, the best view my eyes have ever seen. there were a few clouds in the sky, and some of my best travel pictures are from the top of this place!

A much easier hike than Table Mtn, with great views! The top portion with the chains and hand holds was a nice change from the gradual hill in the beginning and also gave you some security on the way up, especially when the winds pick up!
