MNWENI VALLEY, Drakensberg - Members of Climb Against Sexual Abuse and those who have survived such abuse climbed the Drakensberg-Maluti Mountains last weekend.

The trek symbolises the daily physical and mental challenges a survivor faces. 

The Climb Against Sexual Abuse hikers used the mountain as their metaphor -- defeating their own mental demons, and raising awareness for others to do the same.

Their aim is to conquer Everest Base Camp next year.
