Umpukane - Video

Post by JanoSA » Mon May 06, 2019 12:25 pm

Hi All

Put together a video to showcase a great climbing venue that could use further development. Hoping we can create a little more interest in the area. There is a limited amount of good/excellent climbing in the Free State. As part of the local climbing community in the area, we would love to expand this and I believe this area has the potential to become awesome.

Will update with another video in the near future which should illustrate the scope for development, this one is just to whet apatite :thumleft:

Hope you enjoy.

Cool video and the climbing looks great!
Thanks for posting.

The next step would be to post this up in the Wiki so that all the relevant info (directions, access, routes, etc) is available.
Let me know if you need any assistance.

Hi
Check out the link below for an old RD from 2012. We climbed there a couple times back in the day. Feel free to post it on the wiki.

Between Marquad and Clocolan apparently, according to Mr Google
Happy climbing

Yip, thanks Nic

Between Marquard and Clocolan. Its almost exactly 200 km from Bloemfontein, if that helps


Thanks Deon. That is the newest rout guide I am aware of as well. To my knowledge there are a hand full of project routes not on that guide. But they are unfinished projects. Were you the Deon that was climbing with Nico Scholtz back in 2001-ish?

Hi Jano

No that was before me. We started after that and bolted a bunch of routes in Ladybrand mostly
