Flying is fun, Boven, 12-13 Feb

Postby Ansie » Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:19 am

Hey guys.

We are going to Boven this coming weekend. My friends are going to Super-Bowl/ God-No wall, but since I do not crank as hard as they do, it will be less than productive for me to hang out there. I would like to go to the Flying is Fun area and do as many routes as possible that fall between grade 16 and 20. So if you are keen, please mail me.

I would just be careful. The Fly is fun Craig is close to the Squatter camp. So just make sure you have a few people with you. There has not been a problem there in years but play it safe :)

Hasn't rained in Boven for over 10 days. You'd have to look very hard to find a route that is still seeping. Hallucinogen is bone dry.

Thanks guys. Still waiting for someone willing to go climb with me, but I hope that I will find someone at the lodge or campsite.

Yes Ansie you new age hippie, why do you want to be different? Go to where everyone always go, every single time. We don't need people to go to the old crags. Who wants to climb at places like Flying is Fun, Coven, Toon Town, Junk yard, tripple tier, the island and the last crag of the century in any case. Looser! :wink:
