I reckon the locals should be given the chance to finish what they started, they have put in so much work and are so close, literally failing on the last moves, to give it away to a visitor at this stage would be robbery. Way more exciting to see a local up the ante! Especially on such a fantastic line and such a long standing project! Besides, by the sounds of things there things waiting bolted for him in the Eastern Cape that may well be of a similar standard. Adam will probably be itching to get out to Rocklands anyway.

Neil contacted Arjan & Matt who were close to getting Masawati...they say Adam is welcome to open it. So we have added Masawati to Adam's proposed post Rock & Road itinerary. Proposed, because obviously he decides what he climbs.

He can still swing past Outshoorn.

Nice. Hope he gets out there. It'll be good for South Africa to have a benchmark route.

and if he gets Mazawati and is itching for more there are another 4 long standing open projects at the pipeline just around the corner :thumleft: Montagu might become home of the benchmark 8c and 9a's
