Kirstenbosch Gardens, Nursery Buttress, Five Table Mountain Reservoirs, Track towards Constantia Neck, but turned off back to Kirstenbosch well before the Neck - leader Hendr de Villiers  - Professional Guide - hendredevilliers@gmail.com 

After walk strolled around gardens and took further pictures.

Nursery Buttress - 'B grade' route followed diagonally to left up rock bands - a rope should be used! Nursery Ravine in valley to left is an easier walking route.
