shoes: Sonic RA Pro 2
Couldn't deal with any more R and wasn't going home until after traffic, so thought I might as well get some mountain time.
From old zoo, up to contour via old mill, fernwood track. Then up the start of hiddingh ascension, but missed the turn out of the ravine, so just carried on up until the cliffs, then went out to the left, across wormhole buttress and ravine, and then managed to get lucky and find a fairly safe scramble up protea buttress. Super super fun section of scrambling and some epic views!!!
Then up the last bit to maclears, scaring some tourists with my topless+completely covered in dirt look from the bits of cliff face hugging, down to the edge of the table, ledges to the saddle, dark gorge to the contour and then direct route down with a swim on the way.
Great to get out. And such a lekker day! Purposely chose all the slowest/most technical routes so I wouldn't want to run too much. Knee seemed to hold up fairly well. Bit tender after, but nothing bad.
Didn't feel like separating this into the running+scrambling parts, so just going to leave it as one very slow run.
