Organ Pipes at Didima

Post by Ghaznavid » Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:23 pm

Anyone done any of the Organ Pipes at Didima. The MCSA RD doesn't help much:

All the Organ Pipes have been climbed but none have been documented. Most of the routes are fairly obvious, starting from the gully behind. Those at the southern end are scrambles but the difficulty increases as one moves north. The last Pipe, Isithupha, resisted all attempts for many years.
Trying to figure out if any of them are really easy - like C/D grade. Pics help. Sadly I did Organ Pipes Pass in the mist and only got pics of a few of them (the "really tough" ones).

Find Gavin Peckham - if anyone knows, he's a highly probable option, and may even have spent the night on top wearing a black rubbish bag for protection from the elements...
At the chaaaaains boet!!
