“Regarding the previous post. DO NOT TAKE MICROSPIKES. They are ABSOLUTELY NOT the right thing to use on a mountain. Microspikes will simply allow you to get into a situation that you can't recover from. The proper equipment for ice and/or snow is an ice ax and crampons. And the skill to use them (as in a self-arrest). If you don't know how to use them, DO NOT bring them. If it gets icy, TURN AROUND. Now, a word on altitude sickness. A lot of what looks like altitude sickness is dehydration, insufficient calories and poor sleep the night before. As you climb drink water, lots of water.”

“Giant's Castle is one of the highest free-standing peaks in the Drakensberg. Overnight guided trips are available from Entabeni Expeditions.”

“A group of 3 of us made an attempt at the Coleman-Deming route on June 13-14. The conditions were incredible and we were most surprised by how high the snowline was this year. We had heard that the snowpack was 20% of the usual, but we were shocked by how much elevation we were able to gain on the dirt.
We left for the summit from basecamp at the Black Buttes at 2:30am. Hit the Roman Wall at 5:30 and summited at 6:30. Excellent temperatures, great step purchase on the roman wall and outstanding views from the summit.
