New: from Brazil needs information

Post by brasilclimb » Sun Dec 06, 2009 4:18 pm

Hello all;

I am from Brasil, Rio de Janeiro, and might be going to South Africa around beginning of June. In the same trip I would like to visit some cities, and do a couple of climbs (Cape Town and / or Johannesburg).

I am trying to get some information, so anything I get about weather, places near the city, where it is possible to find climbers (gym or club) will be very helpful.

Thanks for any information.
Climb hard!!

Hi Alexandre,

June is a good time to visit SA in climbing terms normally but with the world cup next year it might be a bit expensive to travel between cities. I was I Rio 3 weeks ago on climbing trip. you have some very cool rock there

I am based in Johannesburg and would be happy to show you round the Gauteng area (crags around Johannesburg) and the world class Waterfall Boven.

let me know if you want any more information. happy to help.

Boven is great in June, dry and sunny. I think its in the top 4-5 venues to sport climb in the world, along with Rodellar, Ceuse, Red River, Siurana. Let us know when you are here.
