I'm visiting South Africa from Canada for the first time in October. I hope to spend a bit of time climbing. I think I'll only have a week and I was hoping to make it to Boven for a few days of cragging. I manage to climb trad to 25/26 and sport a bit harder on occasion when I'm sober or not having an epic. I guess my main questions are what's the "standard rack" at Boven for traditionally protected routes? Is a 60m rope OK? Are there places to stay near the crag? How's the weather in October? How easy is it to find keen partners?
Well, thanks guys...I can't wait to check out the rock. It looks AMAZING in the photos! If anyone is coming to Squamish, drop me a line and I'll do my best to help make you feel at home.
