Spout Cave Water

Postby Hann » Tue Mar 01, 2011 9:13 am

We are planning heading to Tafelberg middle March.

Does anybody know about the water situation at Spout Cave?

Although there was good rain in the Cedarberg during December, we're a little concerned.

Those planning a trip to Tafelberg:

Reconsider.

Both the Spout drip and the Scout stream are bone dry.
Welbedacht stream is only so-so.

We were told the opposite shortly before, so I suspect a serious sandbag....

Not to even mention the fire raging between Krakadouw and Sneeukop.
It may have reached the platuae at the foot of Tafelberg by now.

Visiters have been warned to not even visit the Arch.

Yea, that fire looked REALLY bad! Any further news on that!? They get it contained!?
So sad to see that amount of smoke comming from the heart of the Berg!

FYI: I was last there on weekend of the 19th Feb - Spout drip was dry....

There was still lots of water near Welwedagt, but thats a heavy carry.

After rains you may get lucky with water in the cistern on top or pools.

Spout Cave Water

Has anyone been to Spout cave in the past 1-2 weeks? Is the waterpoint on the Spout full at the moment, or is it necessary to carry up from below?

thanks,

Ray

No water at the drip. There is some, but very little water on top. I would not risk it as there were a lot of people there over this last weekend.

Sorry to sound like a broke record but does anyone know the latest at Tafelberg?
Also if there ain't water at the spout drip then where is the closest water source (currently)?
Thanks

I'm guessing that the answer is A) no, no one knows and B) it is highly unlikely as the Cape has had very little rain in the last few months. Nearest water will probably be somewhere near towards the bottom of Welbedacht Kloof.
Happy climbing
Nic
