It may seem quiet , but its not . Know some climbers from the South Cape MCSA section came through on Sat to do some climbing at Slipper . Whether they did with the weather we had remains a question to ask .

No it is quiet! Apart from the Buffalo Bastards and the PE crowd (though some of the Bastards have switched sides :wink: ) getting around and opening routes, what's the rest of the EC doing? Where are the Grahamstowners climbing? Does anyone know if the South Cape Section guys made it to the Slipper over the weekend?

It sounded like 3 of the chaps(from PE of course) enjoyed sharing a tent in the bush. Not much sleeping...

Nobody forced you guys into the tent....

Who is up for the Hog, this weekend? Not sure if it will be 1 or 2. Hog 2 is way sweet.

Of course yes. We had to sandwich, and we even made turns to be the filling in the sandwich, so that nobody feels left out.

Yeah , being kicked in the face by another party isn't probably the best to experience in such circumstances . Marshall & Co. is heading to Hogsback this weekend for an official MCSA meet and know for sure there'll be more routes opened . Why's the Grahamstown crowd so quiet , too much plaaastic ?
