JHB Climber

Postby Adrian20971 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 11:52 am

Hi

Anyone want to climb?

I am looking for a new climbing partner (The former one sold his soul to the corporate devil). No skills nor gear required, just a sense of adventure and the ability to drink lots of beer.

"There are only 3 real sports: bull-fighting, car racing and mountain climbing. All the others are mere games." — Hemingway.

Give you an excuse to drive your over priced 4x4 to many exotic locations.

Climbing is the one sport where gender has no place, the rock doesn't care about your sex, age or race. You either beat it or you fail and a thousand years later that same piece of rock will still be there waiting for a rematch.

Let me know.

Sounds great :lol:

It would be good to know what area you're in and possibly your real name (so I can tell my mom who I'm going off with... you know, just in case ;)

Is it just me or was that reply by Adrian a bit arrogent and sarcastic? Not the kind of character I would want to go climbing with...

Hey Werner

Ok I admit to the sarcasm, but was trying to be funny not arrogant.

you gotta admit it was kinda self explanatory though.

Hey Adrian

What justin probably ment is, where in JHB are you based because half of Gauteng gets classified as JHB

Your SKYPE adres still Adrian20971 ?

I'm new in Johannesburg, life in Willrowpark, Roodepoort. Fresh from the Western Cape.

Also looking for climbing partners, I climb Sport to Grade 18, Trad 16, bouldering 6B.
Lost a lot of weight recently, so it will be interesting to see what grades I can push now.

Looking for Partners in their late 20's and up (I'm 38). Don't care what grade they climb. Trained enough belay slaves in the Cape!

Warning:
I'm the type that will give a belayer a Wild Country No9 Hex to the head if I see a hand of the deadend. (Just one of the bonusses when carrying hexes!) (Don't care if you use a GriGri.)

My SKYPE adress is jtmoelich if anybody's interested in some climbing. Or post here. Or maybe a group of climbers I can join?
