Climbing partner/friends in Kwazulu Natal Area

Post by English Climber » Tue Sep 23, 2008 12:07 pm


My names Mark, I'm a recent graduate student from England here in SA to do some work exprience with local water and sanitation engineering firm in Kwazulu Natal. I'm also a keen climber, a bit out of shape but still a competant climber. I'm unsure of how the climbing grading works in SA but at home i generally climb comfortably in the 5a-c range (french grading -sport) however as I said I'm a little out of shape. I'm also used to climbing on trad.

I really want to get on some 'rock' and would welcome any suggestions on local areas to climb, good places to meet other climbers, etc etc. I have a sport rack with me, harness and shoes, but no one to tie to the other end of my rope?

email me if your interested in climbing with me. I'm currently living in Mseleni but I'm free most weekends, and have my own 2x4 (not 4x4 which is a shame) bukkie to get me places.

Also what are good places to buy general kit? guide books etc etc for the crags?
