Cape Town woman falls to her death from mountain

A young Cape Town woman fell to her death at the weekend while climbing on the Steenberg mountain range near Muizenberg in the Cape Peninsula. The 21-year-old woman, whose name has not yet been released, fell some 200 metres when a rope she was suspended from snapped. The victim was a keen climber and also enjoyed what is known as “swinging”. This involves swinging from a rope over an overhang. It is thought that the woman’s rope got caught in a rock while she was swinging and the motion chafed the rope until it broke.
