Table Mountain new route - Manoeuvres by Sunlight

Post by Hilton » Fri Dec 23, 2016 6:41 pm

A new route on Arrow Buttress, Lower Buttresses, Table Mountain.

After doing the first three pitches of Manoeuvres by Moonlight, instead of heading up the final corner system, go up rightwards up a steep and curving crack over the huge bulging nose that is the prominent feature of that part of Arrow Buttress. Stance around to the right on a ledge. Then tiptoe up to a rail and rail back left above the roof then up over mixed ground to the big walk-off ledge. Pitches go at 23 and 20.

First ascent: Guy Paterson-Jones and Hilton Davies, 13 October 2016
