The Beach

Post by carlkritzinger » Thu Dec 14, 2006 5:54 pm

I've seen some stunning photos os a mysterious crag called \"The Beach\", allegedly somewhere near PE. Gonna be in the region soon and i'd like to go and climb there if possible. Are there any route guides/topos? Can anyone tell me what the access situation is?

much obliged

Hey Carl ,
you must have seen photos before the floods . Half of the crag , most of the classic routes are out of bound at the moment . Check the latest SA Mountain Mag . There's still some routes to do though but , from 18 - 26 . Only about 5 routes in total . The cool stuff is above water . Let me know if you are interested though as there's still climbing at nearby crags too . Just drop by on this message .

There's DWS potential for the the routes that are now above the water. ( 2 x 29's, a 27 , a 23 and a project) Would be great to have a victim *ahem, cough cough* I mean fellow climber try it out to see if the water is deep enough. But I agree with DBez it's probably not worth going there anymore, unless you're up for DWS of course. But lots of cool stuff in the nearby areas.

There is no change at the beach.. Still lots of water at the base of the crag. We went for a walk on the new sand bank beach oposite the crag. The changes from how it was before the flood are quite amazing.
