Paarl descent

Post by Hann » Mon Feb 20, 2012 2:24 pm

The old orange rope used to down climb from Gordon's rock onto the Belly Button slab has been removed.

This makes for an interesting day if you happend to take a lady up Sands of Time.

Any idea why this has been removed?

I believe some idiot removed it from the top and set it up at the bottom of the Splitter Gully (just left of the start of Sands). Maybe they couldn't find a way down and removed it to descend the final drop in the gully..
One can always squeeze through the hole (where the rope used to be), that's how it was done in the past.. tight fit though.
