Lion's Head

Sophia (a friend from Swarthmore who is now completing her graduate studies at UCT) invited me to join a group of her friends climbing Lion’s Head one afternoon. An hour-long ascent, which makes use of handholds and ladders in a couple of places, leads to the 2,200 foot summit. There are excellent panoramic views of Cape Town, the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, and a string of peaks called The Twelve Apostles. Unlike many of the other climbers at the top, we did not stay for the full moon to rise (our hunger got the best of us).
