Had been following a very promising cold front for the last little while and decided it was definitely worth a hut visit to see what snow it would bring.
Late finishing lecture and some really kak traffic leaving Cape Town (What is it with people forgetting how to drive in rain...), so only arrived to the parking rather late.
Plan had been to get up to the hut before the rain started, but the late start meant it was already drizzling by the time I started. This changed the plan to "get up as fast as possible so you don't get too cold". Worked out pretty well, and by the time I'd got to the hut the toes were the only things that were feeling the cold a bit (not helped by taking a few min to get the hut open because I'd forgotten the key). Weather also never got too terrible. Still slightly +ve degrees and far less wind than I was expecting, so pretty glad about that.
New fastest time up to the hut, but bag was only 6/7ish kg , so not an official record. Would be keen to have a proper a go without a bag sometime and see if the sub 60 is possible.
