Thanks to Walther Meyer for adding this peak.

Lion's Head, above Cape Town, has two standard scramble routes to the summit. The one involves climbing a set of chains and the other has a metal ladder in place. From the summit you have a wonderful 360 degree view of Cape Town, Table Mountain, Robben Island, Camp's Bay and Clifton. Excellent for a moonlight outing in Summer.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Lion's Head in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
