Howzit,

I am looking for a RD for Towerkop, Ladismith, WC. Got some beta on Jackson's route and access, but I need info on anything else.

Any info will help. Thanks.

Marley

Hi Marley,
e-mail me on scottmj@telkomsa.net if you want specific info as you have not said what you need. The MCSA is part owner of the peak and a few more properties in the Klein Swartberg, but you need to access Towerkop via Buffelshoek farm. Contact Mr.le Grange Volschenk on 028 5512 037.
Regards,
Mike Scott

Hi Marley,
Not heard from you yet, but you will find a sketch map of the start of most of the climbs on the 2 summits plus the MCSA jounal references for those that have descrriptions in the 1985 MCSA Journal pages 61 and 62.
Contact Tinie Versveld as he did some routes after that list was published.

Hi Mike

Thanks for the information. We plan to spend a couple of days on the mountain and climb as much as we can. The more info I can get, the better. I'll check out the MCSA journal once I am at the club again.

Thanks

Marley

We are going to Towerkop in Dec. Wondered if there were any other routes recorded outside of the MCSA journals.

Looking for the climbers who opened the route up the white face to the R of the Leaning Block on the South Face of the Eastern Summit.

This is the RD:
Start a few meters R of The Dā€™ Route, which is too the R of the Leaning Block Route.
P1 ā€“ 23 25m Up a white face which is divided by a L trending diagonal crack. Up through the center of the face to the top of the pinnacle.
P2 ā€“ 16 Up onto the face above. Follow the RH crack, until able to step L.
