Coming to Cape Town in jan- where to buy gear?

Post by Rosy » Sun Nov 06, 2005 7:13 am


We are coming over for a month of climbing and bouldering in january and was just wondering where we can buy climbing gear in Cape Town? Crashpads and a rope etc. Someone mentioned a place in Hout Bay? Looking forward to visit your country and check out the great myriad of climbing and bouldering there! Also, are we safe to travel alone as girls? Anyone else going to Rocklands in jan?

Thanks! :D

Just a quick comment on the weather... it's quite hot that time of year! Don't go thinking your going to crank rather just a fun time :-)
I recommend staying at the Alpha farms because Connie and Liz are really friendly AND they have a pool :D which is nice to chill out in... I suggest cocktails, mmm...
