trip partner/climber

Postby snowprincess » Sun Dec 13, 2009 7:27 am

I have 3 weeks to do some travelling in South Africa from the 29th of December to January 18th. I would like to climb, surf, explore, scramble and/or go north to see some animals/ african mtns. I could climb everyday (if that is your thing). I am only slowly building up my skills with leading, have a rack/rope; and am a willing seconder but as a sporty female from Canada I would be open for any outdoor adventure (surfing, hiking, canoeing, cycling). I just would like to get off the beaten track and would feel safer if I wasn't going solo. If you have an interesting trip planned and room for an extra or need a partner for a week or if you have heaps of time free to cruise around the coast from Cape Town to wherever, let me know.

Hi Snowprincess,
I am in SouthAfrica from the 1st of January till the 10th of February. I am there with two friends, man and woman. They are not climbing. The girl is leaving SA on Jan 9th, the guy on Jan 14th.
We have only a rough plan in mind, no fixed plans yet, but swimming, hiking, climbing as well as trying surfing, seeing animals etc. would be perfect!
I am climbing for more than 20 years, and am of course there for climbing as well. I will bring my whole equipment with me (including rocks and friends for trad routes). Surfing I tried only once, one afternoon in Kuta/Bali, I liked it very much...

Hey Marmot,

I am interested to hear more about your plans. At the moment, I've had some tentative contacts with one guy who would like to travel up the coast until the 8th of January and some other hits for climbing partners here in Cape Town. I do have a rack/rope, am leading low grade routes and haven't been climbing anything too hard here. My email address is
