Thanx guys, sadly I'm in Cape Town.

What ever happened to the Waterfront competition? When I was a lightie they used to have it and I always wanted to be in it, then when I was older it stopped?

There has been a serious lack of climbing comps, espescially up in Gauteng ove the last few years, hopefully we can change that around. The Barn is hosting 4 comps this year, 2 climbing, 2 bouldering, each about 3 months apart, obviously the first one being on the 7th of feb, hopefully we can eventually aim at a national comp like they did at the dome in 2000. :D
