Hey guys,

Does anyone know what the speed record is up TM?

Either Platteklip or India Venster

Platteklip is either 23 or 26 minutes up and something like 12 down. Not exactly sure or who did it in those times.

Well, this wasn't barefoot or on India Venster (or at 38 degrees) but the current "official" descent record of platteklip is 11mins 43secs (by Andrew Hagen). So methinks a similar record for India Venster would be somewhere around the 20 minute mark. It's a bit of a dodgy one to be encouraging speed descents of though...

Well the record UP platteklip is 27mins 52 secs (tarmac to top of gorge).

See the thread http://www.climb.co.za/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5563&start=0

26min 42 sec - from Tafelberg road to Maclears Beacon up Platteklip I think.

Down record is 11min 42!
