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.
