Anchor Replacement Fund Progress 2014 + Next Meet

Anchor Replacement Fund LogoThere is an Anchor Replacement Fund (ARF) meet planned at Kalk Bay crags next weekend.  Turnout of the last few meets has been rather pathetic so would be nice if we could get more than 7 people to turn up for a change 🙂

This is a nice crag and this should be the last time we visit it for ARF as we’re planning to finish it up.
Please check out the Facebook page for details – https://www.facebook.com/events/1487968011420015/

Date: Saturday the 28th of June
Time:  09:00
Meeting point:  Godfrey Road (or at the crag if you arrive late) – See details below
What to bring:  Your usual climbing gear/stuff for the day + if you have:  Jumar(s), static line, size 17 spanner, rag (for cleaning glue), cordless drill, cordless angle grinder.

The reason for replacing bolts is obvious – the more hands = less work and completed faster

How to get there

Note the old path recommended in ‘Western Cape Rock’ has grown over.  Two other paths have become well trodden by hikers, please use these instead to minimize erosion and damage to plant life.

East side: At the end of Boyes Drive is a cul-de-sac (Godfrey Rd.). Park here and follow the hiking trail up toward the saddle. Near the saddle, after the second switchback where the path goes briefly down hill, look for a path sneaking off left up a short hill towards a large boulder. From the boulder follow the path up the final slope to arrive just east of Neptune’s cove.

West side: From Main rd turn into Clovelly avenue then take the right fork up Mountain road. Park at the top of the rise, the path leads up from a concrete driveway. Climb the paved path to just below the saddle then turn right onto an obvious well-trodden path 10metres before the saddle. Follow this between two boulders, past a cave, then just above a mini-gulley take a not so obvious turn-off left towards what looks like two boulders, aiming between them. The left “boulder” turns out to be Mermaid wall.

    Not a 17 spanner?

  2. Cuan Jun 20, 2014 at 10:18 am #

    Yep, apologies, a 17 would work much better 🙂

  3. Greg Hart Jun 26, 2014 at 8:43 am #

    Its raining guys, we may need to take a rain check due to the rock being damp

  4. Cuan Jun 26, 2014 at 8:51 am #

    So long as no more rain until Sat it’ll be fine. The quartzite is not porous enough that it’ll be wet more than like 5mm in 😀

  5. Greg Hart Jun 26, 2014 at 6:03 pm #

    We don’t wet it at all Cuan

  6. Greg Hart Jun 26, 2014 at 6:03 pm #

    …want it…

  7. Cuan Jun 27, 2014 at 8:04 am #

    Check with Cormes but he reckons it’s a go as the epoxy is not moisture sensitive 🙂

  8. Greg Hart Jun 29, 2014 at 12:15 pm #

    Good meet guys! I have some gear that is not mine please get in touch if you are missing kit
