DRAKENSBERG DOUBLE SUMMIT ADVENTURE - 3 DAYS

A rewarding three day two night wilderness camping adventure climbing two summit's on the Northern Drakensberg escarpment. The first is Mont-Aux-Sources 3282m which is the highest peak in the area, it's a non technical trekking ascent using the chain ladders to gain access to the Mont-Aux-Sources Plateau & the Amphitheatre.

First nights camp is set up along the Elands River with views over the Maluti mountains. After the summit, we explore the Mont-Aux-sources Plateau, Crows nest, Ribbon Falls, the Amphitheatre and Tugela Falls. The second night is spent near the Tugela Falls giving you great views of the Sentinel Peak you'll be climbing the following day.

The ascent of the colossal Sentinel Peak 3165m which stands on the Western end of the Amphitheatre is a technical Rock route. It starts out as an exposed scramble up steep grass covered screed slopes to the base of the rock pitches. The summit reveals exhilarating views of the Drakensberg Amphitheatre, Tugela Falls & Devils Tooth, the drop below the summit is over 1000m, quite staggering.

Ascent is via the Standard Route, although previous climbing experience is of benefit, anyone who's fit, confident with exposure & scrambling should be able to climb the Sentinel peak on this route. For those with climbing experience we can include Mcleods variation, a more technical section. All technical rock gear is provided by GoVertical - except shoes.
