22 hikers started climbing up Mount Gilboa on 30June 2024 at 8.30am and they ALL had made it to the beacon and back down safely to the cars by 4pm.
The weather was perfect and there were no injuries besides one destroyed hiking stick.
For 10 of the 22, this was their first time up the highest of the BIG FOUR (the others are Swartkop, Bulwer Mountain, and nHlosane).
We all hit Monday morning feeling fit, healthy, and full of endorphins.

Much huffing and puffing up the first part of the climb and through indigenous forest
