Can be climbed three different ways – depending
on how fit and agile you are. Rusty’s Route from
the Lobatse Road is fairly demanding and you must
be aware that your car is unprotected. The two
other routes can be reached via the old quarry and
both start from the same place and diverge later.
The route to the left is a climb whereas the path
to the right is a walk. However you get there and
each route takes approximately one hour, once at
the top you have a panoramic view of Gabs and its
surrounds. The hill has a resident troop of
baboons as well as a pair of nesting black eagles,
and there are also rumours of early morning
sightings of leopard. Well worth a visit.
I am just hoping that the resident baboons don’t decide to come down the hill and enter my apartment as I often leave my door wide open as I sit here and type or cook meals.
