On Saturday, October 18th 2008 Wietse, Naomi and I tagged the summit of Loaf Mountain in the East Castle area, just north of Waterton National Park. Due to a seasonal closure of the road that leads to the normal trail head, we had to walk an additional 4 km each way from a locked gate. This resulted in more exercise but also prevented us from bagging more than one peak, simply because time and energy wouldn't allow for it. (You can do Spionkop Ridge along with Loaf if you have the energy / time. You can also do Drywood Mountain and Loaf if you're so inspired.)
