Looking to borrow/hire/buy a sport rope. Grahamstown area.

Postby dombush » Thu Dec 26, 2013 2:30 pm

Hi.
We are visiting family in the Grahamstown area, staying on a farm off the N2 just out of town. We have flown over from the UK with sport climbing kit and hope to visit a local crag. Our intention was to borrow a rope from a friend but sadly they are away so we have everything except a rope.

Does anyone in the area have one we could borrow or hire for a few days? I would be happy to leave a deposit if someone would be kind enough to let us borrow one.

As far as i know there are no climbing shops in the area to buy one.

We are here until 8th January.

Thanks

Give MMO a call and see if they can ship a rope overnight to you.
