New boy in town... well old chap hoping to go climbing ...

Postby GDHF » Mon Jan 18, 2010 9:45 pm

Hi not sure about new boy more like nearly 50, not climbed for nearly a year, recovering from a cold due to the wonderful weather enjoyed in the UK over Xmas after a year in Abu Dhabi but used to be able to onsight F6b, lead English E1, optimistically packed my boots, harness and chalk but not much else and in Johannesburg for the next 3 weekends. I would love to get out of the city and pull on some rock, or even just hold your ropes! :P

If anyone wouldn't mind a middle aged Brit joining them for a day / weekend on the crag drop me a line.

I go climbing on most weekends, mostly trad in the Magalies with the odd trip to Boven or something a little further. You're welcome to join me when you have an open weekend. How many people have decked on your belay?

Hi thanks sounds good, I will send you my contact details, should have a local mobile by the weekend.

If by "decked on my belay" you mean have I ever dropped anyone the answer is no - no one ever hit the floor with me holding the ropes but I have held plenty of falls... :D taken quite a few myself as well of course...

From one middle aged Brit to another, gimme a call if you'd like to get out!

:D

I have some time off during the week so we could easily sort something out.
