My 30th birthday is coming up and I would love to spend it hiking through the cracks and sleeping over at the Wolfberg Arch. I’m looking for some advice on the following:
Is this hike doable in mid-summer (Jan 20th)? Our plan is to start hiking early on the day before the harshest sunlight is out. Are the cracks mostly shaded?
What is the fitness level needed to attempt this hike? I’ll be fine, but we have some unfit people in our crew, so I would just like to let everyone know how tough it is is before they decide if they would like to join or not.
How much traffic is there on the hike over weekends?
Is it advised to sleep over at Sanddrif the night before or is it possible to drive through from Cape Town the morning of and still be able to start early enough?
Thanks in advance!
