    Well done Clinton! Equally impressive, though, is this Douw Steyn fellow. He seems to be either the belayer, photographer, betamaster or second ascentionst of every notable route, opened or repeated, in the Cape. Sometimes these routes are hundreds of kms apart and done on the same weekend by different people yet, somehow, Douw Steyn is always there. Is this guy for real?

    So is Douw Steyn capable of bilocation? Or does Douw Steyn have a Doppelganger or even two? Or maybe a a twin? Two triplets?
    My search on the Oracle-of-Facebook revealed that there are indeed 17 Douw Steyns in the Western Cape alone.
    The plot thickens.
    Facebook has not been 100% accurate in it’s short time on planet Earth, so I voyaged to the palace of the ever-mighty Google, where the total truth was revealed there is a whole City of Steyns. I shit you not. Go check it out. http://www.steyncity.co.za/
    We are talking about one helluva-serious dude here.
    Go Douw.
