Fixing the mountain

2008-07-11 00:00

“Give me 150 blokes and I will fix the mountain.” These were the words, six years ago, of Cape Town environmentalist James Nowicki to authorities at South Africa’s most visited national park, the Table Mountain National Park.

He got to know all the paths backwards and noticed that many of them were falling to pieces. “Many of them were the original footpaths which used to be really strong. Some of them had an incredible history, particularly relating to their stonework. Some were phenomenal paths of up to 150 years old, for instance those at Devils Peak and Table Mountain, including the old Pipe Track.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
