Would it be fare to say that Bellevue road ist the steepest road in Cape Town up Table Mountain?

 

It is that road on the front side of Table Mountain that run from the top of "Kloof street" to "Kloofnek/Buitengraght"

 

I cant measure the gradient, but damn you struggel to keep the front wheel down.

 

Latitude: 33?56'15.17"S

Longitude: 18?24'3.15"E

I might have to agree with you there, that is one dam steep hill, it might actually be the steepest in SA, just not very long though

 

I know i have to degear into first when i am in a car when i go up there

 

That is one tough blighter.

 

I remember in the 90's they use to have the Milo cycle tour which use to go via UCT and de waal drive to kloof nek and climb up kloof nek, luckily we never did Bellvue drive though..... shew

 

Good old days!
