CRAG Run 10 November 2010

Date: Wednesday, 10 November 2010
Time: 17h45
Location: Constantia Nek

Route description: “From the start at Constantia Nek parking area, we head up a short stretch of t*r road, which soon improves into gravel jeep track, the start of the Contour Path which traverses the eastern slopes of the mountain; at the conference centre fork we go left and UP, all the way to Angela’s Plaque, then down the hill to the 5-way intersection; continuing on the Contour Path we go up again, into Kirstenbosch now, quick easy “undulating” running through the surviving patches of Afro-Montane forest in Rooikat, Vaalkat & Nursery Ravines, on to Skeleton Gorge, through Window Gorge, and down into the garden again; now we take the Rollercoaster jeep track back through Kirstenbosch, crossing all those ravines again at a lower level, around the edge of the reservoir, and then a testing little climb back up into Cecilia Forest; some more level easy running brings us to the last water stop, before the final ascent (what were you expecting?) to the conference centre and a gentle downhill warm-down. Sunset is at 19h22.”
