Spout Rules and Ethics

Post by crigs » Mon Dec 02, 2019 6:37 pm

These are the iron clad rules and ethics of Hotel Spout, the cave that looks out onto Tafelberg. Obey or suffer mob justice.


1. Drop trou wherever you may be, when the need arises. Pop a squat and blow mud all over the local flora and fauna.

2. Place a rock over the mess, making sure to leave shreds of soiled toilet paper sticking out from under the rock.

3. The best places to soil are right outside the cave or on the poop deck above the cave (the broad flat rockshelf where you go to have sundowners...I mean sunbrowners)


1. Never pack out what you pack in. Always leave your trash in the cave.

2. If you want to be creative, hide your trash under rocks and in the chinks between the man made rockwalls of the cave.

3. If this is too much effort, just leave it wherever it happens to fall and let it decorate the cave floor

trash & graffiti invites more of the same.
i'm getting in the habit of taking trash bag along and clean up whenever i venture into the mountains. use a sharp stick / trekking pole to spear the dirty toilet paper.
such is the fate of the guardians of the mountains :wink:
