Join us for the Table Mountain Challenge

The Cornish coastal path walk is a regular feature of MEI Conferences in Falmouth, and in recent years the optional hike up Table Mountain has become established in the timetable of the Cape Town conferences.

Although only a short walk in terms of mileage, the ascent of Table Mountain from the Lower Cable Way via Platteklip Gorge is a real tester, with a vertical ascent of around 700 metres, so do not undertake this unless you are a strong regular hiker.

If you would like to join us after Process Mineralogy '14, we will be meeting in the foyer of the Vineyard Hotel on Thursday November 20th. If you are an experienced hiker you probably do not need me to remind you that you must have suitable footwear and clothing, and that you must bring plenty of water.

Photos from recent hikes are shown below, and you can also see a movie of our ascent last year with Flotation '13 delegates.
