Inspired climb

Bolander contributor Murray Williams hiked up West Peak three-times-in-a-row, on one day: Thursday November 11. By summiting West Peak three times, he climbed a total of 2650m of vertical ascent, over just shy of 40km. The marathon hike was to raise funds for a woman patient at Spescare rehabilitation hospital in the Helderberg, who urgently needed medical equipment at her home in Khayelitsha. Murray managed to raise almost R20 000 in a single day – thanks to the generosity of the people of the Helderberg, who followed his epic “Three West Peaks”. PICTURE: MURRAY WILLIAMS
