hi all

me and a few friends want to head out to swinburne sometime. i checked for a route guide and found a old one on the SAclimb site. only problem is the route guide is a bit out dated. i tried wiki but with no luck.

is there a new updated route guide?

thanks

Try and get hold of Jaques Raubenheimer in Bloem, as he sells RD's fo the Free State. Think some of the outdoor shops that sell climbing gear might have his number.

Everest is much better if you havnt climbed there. If you go to swinburne watch your belongings in the barn, we had stuff stolen. Take a bouldering pad.
