One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain is the jewel of Cape Town. Its offerings are endless. Whether you want a casual walk, exciting scrambles, easy rock climbing or something harder, Table Mountain has got what it takes. It will cater for any or all your needs.

The trad climbing around the top cableway station is particularly fine (home of the classic Jacob’s Ladder) and the west-facing Apostles also have good trad routes. [Table Mountain Classics & Cape Peninsula Select guide books]
