Three Generations on Table Mountain - Sept. 21, 2017
 
I've deleted all my content. I can't accept Vertical Scope's (the site owner) terms of service and can't stand their use of advertising, particularly the viglink service which inserts links into my posts without my permission. I'm sad to leave the CT community and thank all of those who have contributed over the years.

This is great :)

Awesome report and great pics! All the smiling faces say it all. :) Glad to see you're still putting up reports despite the discussion over in other parts of the forum.

Anybody headed up table mountain during winter before? Is it reasonable for snowshoeing or too risky for avalanches?

More pictures coming! :) We did the Chain Lakes Loop with my in-laws on this trip and the post is close to ready. Then Janine and I went to Winthrop a week later, so I've got another one to post on the Heather-Maple Pass Loop.

Thanks! I've certainly been tempted to stop posting, but the passion of some of the users of late exhibited in that other thread has reminded me of the importance of being involved in this site to keep it going, even with its flaws.

Regarding a winter ascent, I attempted it in February this year (https://bcmtnman.wordpress.com/2017/...vered-in-snow/). Unfortunately, I didn't summit, turning around due to a lack of confidence in the snow conditions, but I suspect it's possible.

Looks like a great place to ramble, and cool to have the whole family along

Awesome stuff!

I did Table Mountain in winter of 2016/17 season on a cold, bluebird day... The buttress to get onto the table was so steep that I almost had to "vertical trenching" on snowshoes. Descended the NE Face which is full on mountaineering terrain. Was quite a committed solo trip. The views were killer though...

That's an impressive site Redbeard. Will be a valuable info source for my trip planning!

Thanks Steve, I actually checked out your report just before you replied because I figured you may have done a winter ascent. :)
