I am not a morning person. Not even a little bit, so that's no excuse. Climbing Lion's Head to watch the sunrise at the top is phenomenal. This activity was surprisingly popular. There's no need to book a tour - the path is very obvious and you can do it yourself. Take water. Find out what time the sun rises and aim to get to the base about 1hr 15 before.
The climb itself require a certain level of fitness. There are parts where you are rock climbing, not hiking. If you're lucky, there's a chain that you can hold onto whilst you hoick yourself up. Other parts have stirrups that you can use as a leg up. It's a lot of fun, and nothing beats the views from the top. The sun rises over the mountains in the background and goes through phases of different colours.
