Will be in Cape Town on business -looking for partner

Postby Maltaman » Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:04 am

Hi everyone I just confirmed that I shall be flying to Cape Town on business later this month and have the 23rd February free! It would be great to meet up with someone and go climbing for the day. I'm 49 years old and have been climbing for about 30years and am now climbing about French 6a/b which in South African grades is 18-21. I'll bring rock shoes, chalkbag and harness and anything else if necessary! I'm President of the Malta Climbing Club and will be glad to return the favour should anyone be flying out to Malta sometime. www.maltaclimbingclub.com

Hi Simon, drop me a line on karlbase@iafrica.com closer to the time. If I'm still in town it'd be a pleasure to take you up on Table Mountain & introduce you to a few of our classic routes.

Maltaman,

Sounds like a good deal. If you are stuck without a partner, try me. henk at bsec dot co za. Can do moderate trad outing on Table Mountain.

Thanks Henk thats very kind of you too. I can't wait for this trip to happen - never thought I'd get the opportunity to visit South Africa, let alone climb there :)

Unfortunately both Karl and Henk who replied above can't make it after all. I have been kindly offered a half day out but a full day would be so much better! Is there anyone else who can go climbing this Thursday or Friday? Cheers!
