The Bell Traverse – Drakensberg – last minute training?
We set off for 3 days to hike the Organ pipes up to the escarpment, cleft peak (3200m+-, 2nd highest peak in SA and 3rd in Southern Africa) across to the Bell traverse and down.
I hoped that this would prep me ever so slightly for what is to come very soon – the himalayas. However these heights dont quite compare but the views do! Our timing was perfect: warm days, no wind and fairly mild nights in contrast to this weekend, where its snowing!
I live in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal which is great cycling country, within 10 minutes I can be bouncing along some of the finest single tracks in the province.
