You have a couple of options if you don't physically know anyone that climbs:

- Contact the MCSA - Mountain Club of South Africa
- Join an indoor climbing gym and do a beginners course
- Chat to enough people on this site to find one that lets you tag along on an easy excursion (makes sure they have spare gear for you)

Where're you based?

Cheers
Jono

I decided earlier this week to get of my ass and start climbing.

I surfed the web, found this site and others; did some research; made contact with people; went to an MCSA meeting on Wednesday evening; and Sunday I'm off with some of these folks to climb.

It was that simple. 8)
