Climbing in Potchefstroom/North West

Post by AlphaBlondie » Wed Sep 23, 2015 6:31 pm

I'm moving to Potchefstroom next year, which unfortunately means I have to leave my climbing club and all the cool routes close to home behind :( Anywhere cool to climb close to Potch? And any climbers who wouldn't mind having me tag along? :)

The university has a climbing club and a wall which is ok. The closest climbing is about 30min way(?) but is not very good. I'm not sure how far way the next climbing is.

Come and join us at the university's wall/cave. If you are not a student you MIGHT be called 'tannie' but if you are ok with that then you're welcome :thumright

And I'm sorry to say but potch must be the shittiest location to live if you are a climber (closest real crag is fern/choss)
