Not really. It is kinda rude to post people's email addresses and phone numbers on the forum, because the amount of spam you get triples.

If you want the info let me know.

Hey Nic! I think he meant post info on the routes or climbing areas. Or better yet put the info in the wiki.

Would be good to know about more crags in that area.

sent you a pm

Maybe try contact someone from the the South Cape section of the Mountain Club. They'll probably be able to answer your questions and they're a great bunch of people!

Not going to post contact details here, but they're on the website: http://mcsasc.wordpress.com/

See also the: George - Wolwerivier thread.
drew wrote:Wolverivier is still open. its requires a call to the appropriate people and it helps to be a MCSA member. if you not a MCSA member the owner or his manager will not allow you in. Unfortunately Marius is no longer the person to call.
Rob Stewardson is the correct person to call 082 462 1451, however he is off visiting his guru in India. Dave Jones will by default be the next person to harass 044 - 343 1407. If you do want to climb at Wolverivier you need to organise the permit on Thursday or latest Friday morning to get in for the weekend.

It is also subject if the owner is there or not. don't try just pitch you will be chased away. A word on that, for those that carry more attitude than brains don't f...k it up for the rest of the climbing community by bad mouthing the guards or the manager. it is a privilege to climb there not a right.
Kyle are the above contact numbers still correct and if not who should be contacted??

Wolwerivier, while nice, is extremely limited. Oudtshoorn is only an hour from George and is a fantastic place to climb. I will be in George between 16-26 December, send me a pm if you want to make climbing plans.
