Hardest route on Lady Slipper property in PE

Postby DBez » Mon Nov 21, 2005 8:01 am

Mornè van der Mescht opened another route , this time on the MCSA property close to PE . Bolted during the week and working it on Saturday morning he got it finally later the same afternoon, giving us a \"Screamer\" grade 29 . The route is very bouldery and start with thin crimpy moves on the eastern side of Hidden Boulder . 5 bolts long and having the first crux at the bottom it demands power and only eases off to about 26 close to the anchors . Looking for a second ascent....come'n have a go on the routes here !

Hi DBez

We are going to be in near PE for Christmas holiday and would love to climb at Lady Slipper etc. Where can I find the topos for Lady Slipper, Van Stadens Gorge and maybe if you know 'the Crags' near Natures Valley?. None of these are on this sites topos

Regards

Awesome Morne!! Stunning! It must be the big hands.

The Crag at natures Valley was in an SA Mountain Mag publication, but not sure which one. I have most of the EC info.
