Is there a trad guide available for Wolfberg Cracks?

A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”

Contact Jayson Orton who published a guide a while back. I think he is a MCSA member so that may be a good place to leave a message for him. Sorry I dont have his contact info.
The only other publication (apart from scouring through umpteen MCSA journals) is the original Western Cape Rock written by Andrew de Klerk and Jeremy Colenso - now out of print, but worth tracking down for its wealth of trad info.

There were tiny pocket guides avalible for Wolfberg about 7 years back, from MCSA CT...are these the Jason Orton guides? There were not that many routes recorded in them...about 35 I believe. Julian Fisher's Cape Rock 9 routes at WB.

when we where up there two weeks back the campsite at sanddrift had a copy of (I think) Jayson Ortons guide...
Otherwise Cape Rock has a couple of the main routes:

Quite Something 17
Satisfaction guaranteed 18
Omega 19
Gallows bird 23
Celestial journey 22
Alone in space 22
Little red rooster 15
Energy crisis 20
Knobless robot 18

for all others MCSA journals are best...I recall one that had a whole lot of routes at Tafelberg

Happy climbing....

Which edition of the journal is that? It's worth knowing about...
You have an opinion, so do I. When these differ, please don't confuse your opinion with the truth, nothing is absolute.

1979 Journal page 80 onwards. Excellent and easy to follow. Did one of the lesser known routes a few years back and had no problems following RD.
