The MCSA promotes the sustainable use of our mountain resources, and facilitates access to our natural heritage in a friendly and supportive manner, through:

Walking, hiking & scrambling

A wide range of meets are offered – from relaxed, short walks with lots of botanising, all the way through to adventurous scrambling on routes that few venture onto; from half and full-day hikes, to weekend and longer hiking trips in remote ranges of the Cape.

Rock climbing

To a lesser extent, we also have rock climbing on our list of activities.


We actively promote and partake in a wide range of conservation initiatives, such as alien vegetation hacking.


From time to time we have social evenings and camping weekends for members or interested parties.
