To the Saddle via Oppelskop Ridge on Devil's Peak

Shirley describes this as an "easy-rising, circuitous route up to the Saddle and easily down via the Zigzags Path. A very nice walk with good views over the city and bay, and many flowers to see in the spring." (Page 28 of A Walking Guide for Table Mountain.)
It will take about 3 hours. Dogs encouraged to deal with muggers - anyone got a cattle prod too??
Meet at the parking spot on Tafelberg Road - about 2 km from cable station - with the large gums trees. There is a signpost opposite the car park on the side of the road.
