Karbonkelberg CREW - Pascale; Monita; Nikki; Abi; Michelle; Penny & Migs

Spectacular Views

Monita soaking up the views

"On Sunday morning, myself & eight lovely ladies (including Manna & Tana) merrily conquered the Karbonkelberg! Typically poor weather forecasting meant that the expected 29 degree temperatures did not quite materialize and we enjoyed a bit of cloud cover and a cool breeze to help us to the top of the mountain.

With such fine athletes present, we made it to the top in no time at all, despite the odd “numb foot” rest periods. In true EYB style, we took in not one, but two VAVT moments. The first with spectacular views down onto the “Bos 400” shipwreck and a bit of “seal spotting” and the second from Abi”s “timber deck” from which we had incredible views of Seal Island, Chappies, Noordhoek & even False Bay in the distance.

It was here, thanks to the cool breeze and Penny’s suggestion that the Llandudno PHV was changed to coffee (and lunch) at La Cucina. This was all the inspiration that was needed. In no time at all, we marched back down Karbonkelberg, ready for that well Earned Breakfast.

La Cucina PHV

Tana... what's that?

Typically, Tana & Manna were in fine form, doing twice the distance as any of the two legged athletes, but mention must be made of Aussie Michelle’s performance considering she’s only been in town for two weeks and done more hikes than most of the regular EYB cru. And to the five remaining lovely ladies, thanks for your EYB effort & the great company. All in all, it was a great hike. Sorry for those who were frolicking elsewhere – you missed out!!"
