New Route on Table Mountain – el Matador **** (19?)


Sunday 11th October 2015, on one of those splendid and incomparable Cape Town days, my old china, Willie Koen, and I (Tony Lourens) put up a lekker new route on lower Arrow Buttress. The route takes a fairly direct line up the Bullshoot Prow, pulling through some nice bulges and roofs. Awesome route on good rock with excellent gear. el Matador is 3 pitches and goes at around 19ish. It’s waiting for a second ascent!!
