We were at Van Stadens today. Opened a few easy trad routes up stream from the Beach. The Beach is still well watered. The dam is filling at an awesome rate. After the next strong rain the Beach could be back

there is a bouldering guide for St Francis on the site that you can download and print. the bouldering there is pretty cool :) the area has probably been developed as much as possible really. a handful of EC climbers spent a couple of months bouldering there and opening problems at the end of last year. don't think there's anything new that can be developed there but it's a nice area to have a little fun. :)

1) Go to the top of this site's homepage
2) Look on the left under Contents and click on \"Routes\"
3) Download the Cape St Francis guide from the Eastern Cape section

Then go check it out! You might wanna contact some of the PE climbers (if you're in that region?). Nrs in the St Francis guide. They get around a lot so you can bum lifts :wink:

Enjoy!
