Scrambling on Table Mountain is fun and adventurous, but it is important to know what you are getting into. Scrambling is a common term often used when describing many Table Mountain hiking routes.

To say scrambling is like easy climbing would be a pretty close explanation, but it is important to note that scrambling is not rock climbing and you do not need to have any rock-climbing experience nor do you need any technical rock-climbing gear.
