Simonstown - Jewel of the South

 

These routes are taken from the descriptions by Tut Trainor in 1980. His original handwritten notes give an interesting account of the routes and activities around Simonstown at that time. Tut was awarded the Mountain Club Gold Badge in 1985 for his outstanding contribution to conservation and mountaineering. His obiturary published in Veld & Flora of June 1985 makes interesting and moving reading - he was a remarkable man. (With thanks to his son Martyn 'Spook' Trainor for making these available.)

Descriptions to follow - Martyn Trainor has volunteered to help with this section!


Note:  All these roues that we have walked and explored in the mountains around Simonstown have been inspired by Tut's pioneering work. The scanned copy of his original notes are a little hard to read on screen.  Any volunteers to type them up?
