Throwback to slaying a Lion!

in adventure •  2 years ago

I climbed my first mountain...

So Lions head is a mountain in Cape Town next to Table mountain. Not to hectic but if you haven't climbed a mountain yet (like me) then you'll find it quite hard.

My best friend (Melissa) and I climbed it in 2014 so it has been a while.

This is Lions Head

This is me (a very unhappy camper).. I was terribly unfit, hungover AND afraid of heights:

Don't know if these guys are checking out my assets or just laughing because of how my legs were shaking at that moment.

There were a few times where I wanted to turn back but my best friend and my FOMO (it means fear of missing out for those under rocks) kept me going forward.

I made it! It was worth it! Such a beautiful world we live in.

Thank you, self timer is a pro at taking photos ;)

Nice post. I miss that mountain, used to go climb it every second weekend or so with the rest of the family when I was younger. Table mountain is a lot more demanding than Lions head in my opinion but very satisfying to conquer. Good luck!

Yes, Table mountain is another story! Thanks!

Beautiful photograph at the end, and well done !
