Hi Guys
Next ARF meet is at Kleinmond Sat 11th

More info about the event can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1446827702233217/

and future events within the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ARFinfo/events/

Please come join and help out, Kleinmond needs the remaining 9 routes completed.

They are good quality (easy and moderate) and are on the lower slopes so we won't have to trek all the way to the top of the hill!

Cheers
Cormac

At the edge of my leading comfort zone, so difficult tu judge.
Is Momentary Lapse of Reason still a 22 with the new "straight up" line?
I found the middle section when you start going up instead of right quite hard.

Classic routes right by the river (excellent Summer venue).
If you fancy limestone style climbing on the Cape sandstone go and enjoy yourselves!

Should be easier as you don't have to over crimp due to rusty bolts!
