Naeem should be long gone, but Patrick, are you still around and looking for people? I'm keen to climb, but don't have a rope. Don't think I'll buy one for the (indeterminate but dwindling) time I have remaining, either.

If you want to boulder, drop me a line. Happy to show anyone around the Cape Town boulders...

I'm scrawny and weak and have horrible technique, so obviously bouldering is not my forté (at least with the height of climbing I get the feeling of accomplishment that I can't get by overcoming difficult problems ;D ), but I'll still give it a go if it gets me outside. ;) Just give me a few days to get re-settled in Cape Town and get past Christmas. Gotta finally do the full moon Lion's Head hike shortly...

Hey.
I stay close to some of the crags in the southern suburbs are, e.g. The mine, Lakeside pinnacle, the hole etc. and am always looking for people to climb with.
Give me a shout. my number is 079 328 5168

Cool, will do soon. Had a bit of an accident on Thursday that left me limping and bleeding (might be why the nice route beside the 13 in Lower Silvermine's Main Crag isn't in the guide book), but I should be good soon so will be looking to climb again after Monday.

Hey, wasatchgirl and Ralphus, I'm good to go if either of you are interested. Playing footy tonight and probably watching Friday, but other than that I'm free. Sorry for the extended delay, friends & family and all that (which is weird for a tourist...). ;) Wasatchgirl, I hear you and your crew are pretty advanced so I won't be able to keep up, but I'm happy even to come out and watch the experts perform their craft.

Phi, I am home in the States right now, but return this Sunday. I climb (usually boulder) Tuesday and Thursday night and then all day on Saturday and Sunday. This schedule should start back up as of this coming Tuesday. Drop me a line if you are keen.

Cool, thanks. I will do if I'm still around (otherwise when I'm back). Rough idea is to head off travelling for February, but we don't have a plan yet so I'll probably still be in Cape Town for the first few days of Feb, so might be able to join you on your first Tuesday back. ;) And yeah, with that schedule you obviously ARE hardcore. ;D

Anyone up for meeting at Silvermine on Saturday? I don't have draws or a rope or any knowledge of the crag so I'm not really bringing much to the table....but I can belay and sometimes drag myself up the rocks so if that sounds good let me know.

Certainly interested, but I don't have draws or a rope here, either. I'll see if I can coerce someone else into joining. Should be climbing with Andrew76 on Sunday, too, if you're up for that (dunno where/when, yet).
