A little more information would be useful here :cheese:
Perhaps, which part of the country you wish to go climbing in?

If you plan on climbing in the Cape the Western Cape Rock Guide has GPS coordinates for most of the areas.

What about all areas in the country? I still don't know where to go.
The wiki has a map of all areas. So is there someone who has all the coordinates already?

Petje, you are a bit vague so here is the best answer I can give: I believe the crag you are looking for is North of S90 00.000 E0 00.000 :wink:

Dude, we have more than 100 AREAS listed on the wiki - and that list doesn't even have all the crags - somewhere like Montagu or Waterval Boven has more than 30 CRAGS spread over a rather large area. If you're looking for GPS coords for everything, well I don't think anyone has that. That's like asking someone for GPS coords for evry sinlge crag in Spain. Look at the wiki, decide what you need specifically, ask specific questions and you'll get answers.

Does anyone know how 'Toon Town' (found in the top half of the list) got its name and who named it?

Hey Justin, howzit? Grant Murray apparently named it after watching the movie "Who framed Roger Rabbit".

The routes KILL THE WABBIT (14) and ROGER STRIKES BACK (24) confirms this to an extent? For more info, watch this:

The lost generation! First its numbers in your names, now the crags are all numbers, soon the route names too then all the beta in altitudes vectors and inclinations, eventually you wont be able to tie your own shoe laces without locating them on google earth first.

I feel ill, old and sad......... :puker: :? :(
