Just a wee message, for anyone and everyone who wines about climbing in SA, don’t!! I am stuck in freezing cold London, and all I ever get to do is climb on the stinky dirty old climbing gym! I would give my left nut for a day out at NSA with the lads!!! Rock on I will be home soon, hopefully....

just out of curiosity, how many of us here are stuck in London at the moment? For what it's worth I get down to Mile End at least once a week. (callumd@gmail.com)

For those of you living in London, I suggest getting to Spain (especially Catalunia) to climb: endless amounts of awsome climbing, SUN, great food, and the air-fair is about the same as your Zone 1-6 monthly.

Hey London isn't that bad, and you can leave any time you like. I mean why did you come here in the first place? Free choice? And from London you can travel any place in the world, you can't from SA...even on a crappy sallery. And make the best of the weather, maybe learn a bit about trekking and so on, you can camp in the field and won't get murdered :P (gerhard@soak.co.za)
