The Hardest Cache on Table Mountain
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Warning: extreme danger. The Cache is only accessible using technical rock climbing gear.
The cache is located on a ledge on the Venster Buttress of Table Mountain, below the "India Venster" hiking route, on the "India Giver" and "Bombay Duck" climbing routes.
Read everything for clues:
Abseil: Overhanging abseil from the bolts (33°,54',53" S, 18°24',05" E) with swing and possibly a short climb
Rock climbing - technical grade 15 or 17 (trad). To ledge on "Bombay Duck" or "India Giver".
Hiking: (technical grade about 9/10). Note that hiking is by roped access with possibility of 50m fall. From the top of the Venster buttress, hike along India Venster until the top of the ridge (where the path starts to make the long rounded traverse towards the new rungs). Make your way down to the (probably dry) waterfall between Venster and arrow buttresses and traverse left along the contour path and onto the rock face until you can't go any further.
