Botmaskop Trail Run

Our trail grading: YELLOW 7B
Distance: 9.32 km
Extremeness: Technical single tracks & tough climb
Location: Botmaskop, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Only me

This afternoon I headed up Botmaskop again, searching for new single tracks and exploring new routes. My legs were still a bit shaky after the weekend runs, but the climbing went reasonably well. On the way down I took a new jeep track which did not end up where I expected! I ended up on the Helhoogte pass and had to run about 1.5km on tar before getting a route back onto the trail... noooooooo!
