Climbing at home.

Postby klimkop » Tue Jul 20, 2010 10:35 am

Would be interesting to see what climbers climb at home. There's always interesting possibilities right on your doorstep, almost literally. This is what I climb at home in Parow/Bellville. I named the route, "On the other side of the boereworsgordyn". I think the grade is about 21. Belayed by Niel. please post other home climbs. If there is home climbs close to each other one can team up and climb each others routes.

Unfortunately I only have 3 flights of polished stairs, but they do get the R-rating depending on how good the night out was :jocolor:

What you do is Urban climbing and what the guys in this video clip(see above) do is urban free climbing.

Has anyone got a better definitions of what to call it?

Cool video. The guys train pretty hard. Both climbing is urban. The one is free/solo, the other is protected. So I think the word free sets the 2 styles apart.
