hi everyone!
i will travel to south africa in january 08 for three weeks.
I like to visit some climbing areas, but i´ve no idea wich area is the best for this time. I want to make a roundtrip in the eastern part of the country, because i arrive in JOhannesburg.
I would be glad about infos of the best spots and the must have seen routes in your country.
I also need to know where i can find further informations about the spots (getting there, topos,...). maybe a guide book, you could recomment?
