Great news!!
The suspect who was involved in the mugging of 3 climbers last year at Skoorsteenkop above Hout Bay has been sentenced to 12 years in prison!!!!
This sends out a strong message to any other would be muggers.

Big up to the three guys who persevered and continued with the prosecution of the suspect/mugger.

Here is a report of the incident :arrow: Anatomy of a Mountain Mugging

It was a long and instructive story. Given the strong emotions involved so yuo have to be critical vegan and not draw too hasty conclusions. It is nevertheless clear, that H has carefully thought through the sequence of events. It increases the credibility and respect of his self-awareness.
