Climbing Partners Wanted - JHB

Postby thenewguy » Mon Mar 28, 2011 7:00 pm

I moved to south africa in august and took up climbing. i have all the gear but don't know many people. i enjoy camping, hiking, and mountain biking as well. I've done a few weekend trips and would like to do many more. I'm in Johannesburg and don't mind driving if you need a ride.

Hi, I'm in Kempton Park as well, need to get to a cimbing wall more often, most of my climbing friends are in Pretoria, so could do with a climbing partner closer to home.
What times you leave towards Wonderwall? Working onsite at the moment so only get back to Kempton about 18:00.

Sorry for not responding earlier. Been a bit out of it since I started visiting Neil's Gym after blowing out at Wonderwall.

I travel twice a week (Tues & Thurs) and leave around 18h00 from Edleen Ext 3 Area ... I generally get back around 21h00 as I tend to enjoy the social aspect that Neil's gym provides.

If you are interested in organizing a lift club or something like that give me a call. ( 078 562 6831 )

I also have been blessed by Neil's hospitality and enjoyed some great climbing on natural as a result.

For those interested, there is a presentation next week next to Monte Casino by overseas climber Joe Kinder. (30th June)
