Ladies on Trad??

How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

Are there any ladies out there leading trad?

Hell no! Bolts only (or seconding)

I can think of 4 wives who climb harder than their husbands on trad... thats what marriage does to you!

Trad is for everyone. There are way more do-able trad lines than easy bolted lines.

Hell yeah!

The girl trad scene is hotting up in Josi - there is nothing like a day in the sun in magalies, clinking away up the kloof with a number 5 swinging away (thanks miss bick), ending up in the stream hours later with a handful of white chocolate chuckles (thanks bron), then hotfooting it back home over the pass with a hiveld storm chasing you all the way!

Girls do it in style...
Have Fun...

Girls should stay home and make sure that supper is ready for us male climbers.
Sure chicks can climb a bit but they should rather put that energy and effort into their domestic housework.

Sure Rasta...the great thing about climbing without my own set of nuts is I don't have to think with them all the time... :D

wats wrong Rasta... are u feeling a little threatened... perhaps by some hot chicky telling you that your nuts are too small for that crack, as she steps passed you and leads it in fine style :lol:

I took an American chick climbing in the kloofs a few weeks back. She said she wanted some proper hard crack climbing. So off we went to do Sabre!!! a bloddy hard 19 of flaring smooth off width crack; which she led in fine style!!!

I can think of very few SA woman (2 or 3) that could lead this climb... and she could think of hundreds back at home...

Come girls... lets hear your say
I know for a fact that 1 of my fiancé’s goals is to climb harder than me :roll:

I sometimes cry like a girl when I'm scared - does that count...?
