New South Africa Area East London

Post by Rainer » Mon Nov 28, 2005 4:25 pm

My brother and I are going to be in Port Alfred in December and would like to get some sport climbing in. I would appreciate it if anyone has any information about the NSA climbing area in East London. i.e. directions there and route guide.

Ahhh, good old NSA crag , what a beauty . Yeah , there's lots to do there . Might as well contact the two crag huggers there for info on the area either be Garvin Jacobs or Derek Marshall .
Garvin's phonenumber is 083 9610044
Derek 083 6818713
Also , check out one of the earlier issues when there was an article in SAMM with some great photos of this spot .

Hi Rainer

Send me your address. Have the updated guide.

NSA is worth the trip. Lots of stuff...close toegether. Shade all day in summer. Short walk-in. Flat base. What more could you ask for.
