Wellington's Dome info please

Postby nosmo » Wed Apr 16, 2008 11:26 am

Hi all,

Does anyone know of any route updates/new routes on the Dome - I mean, besides the ones listed here http://www.saclimb.co.za/northern/wellington_main.html

And any info that'll be useful in general will be appreciated.

Thanks,

shorti

have you been there before? I've got some google earth place marks I can email to you. Important stuff: helmet, lots of water, comfy shoes, antibrand, warm clothes and sleeping bag (it can get pretty cold at night).

There is a very nice RD with pictures etc. in the 2005 or 2006 MCSA journal (article is called \"Jy wil wat doen?!\" or something to that effect) by Neil Margetts. Copies are on sale at the MCSA club evenings.

Thanks Gadget, had the journal all along (it's the 2005 one btw). Nice photos but the route descriptions on saclimb are more complete. Shorti, sent you a pm with my email. I'd love to check the place on Google Earth.

Thanks for the info.

suppose we could, but it is a xml file (basically just coordinates with descriptions to the wall, farmhouse, camp spot and gate) Justin can I email it to you to upload it somewhere on the server so that we can put a link to it on the wiki?
