After the second successful BMC/MCSA exchange in 2016 members of the South African trad climbing community are again invited to participate in a similar event in 2017.

Although not really visible the Ag Chardonnet massif loomed above us and ahead. I was musing on the possibility (although considering how long I have been climbing), rather, the probability of having an Epic.
It is not a 5 star Krakadouw or Tafelberg route but it is certainly worth 4 stars in the context of the Du Toits’ Kloof area. It is easily done in a day from Cape Town.
Recently, Deon Van Zyl and I fashioned what I consider to be the closest to a “perfect” trad route I have personally ever climbed.
Gosia Lipinska, Julia Wakeling and Hector Pringle summited Fitzroy on Saturday night and are down safe and partying tonight.
Gosia did a fine red-point of “No Longer at Ease” 25 with Douw.
The apparition then melodramatically stated: “I am gonna vomit”. I turned my head away bemused but held the belay rope steadfastly as Farrell was still climbing on the other one.
