Climbers in the Newcastle (KZN) area

Post by Brendan10 » Sun Aug 15, 2010 5:40 am

Good day.

I'm currently living in Newcastle, and I'm desperately looking for a climbing partner. It seems like I'm the only climber in this town. So, contact details of any climber living close to Newcastle will also be appreciated.

Thank you

I know that feeling i stayed in a area for two years drived me nuts.

i have 3 suggestions:

I suggest you start a club n Newcastle, build a bouldering wall in your garage and invite people to get into the sport. Its not too expensive and i can help with materials. send me an email if you want more info - nic at thecrag dot co dot za

the second suggestion is plan week-end trips to umgeni valley or harrismith and meet up with climbers there.

my third suggestion is find a crag in Newcastle and we will come to you.
