Starting from Rhodes Memorial parking area, the jeep track starts with a reasonably steep incline onto Plum Pudding which tests the legs early. Then over the top down on to the other side to start the climb to the Blockhouse. Take in the views over the whole of Cape Town!

Then its down and up a short climb to Tafelberg. Turn off the tar road and onto the jeep track at Dead Man's Tree and then be prepared for some steep downhill sections. Follow the road to the right and then climb back up Rhodes Memorial.

There is no single track on this route but plenty of elevation.
