The first ever deep water solo competition, in Africa, took place at Wilgerpoort, South Africa.
Over 100 climbers were laying siege on Monteseel. We took a lunch break in the shade, soaking up the sight and threw “useful” comments from the peanut gallery.
As of the beginning of June You must have a Rocklands permit to climb at the area.
A psyched group of about 40 climbers attended the 2014 Rocklands Conservation Day on an icy but sunny Saturday 7 June 2014.
This end goal was to create a final punt for the up-coming Tradathon at Monteseel, so if you have not made plans to join, hopefully a sexy Pin Up, a wheelchair and a fly-bye view of the Hallucination wall
This year’s MCSA Supertramp, Bernie Theron (member of Magaliesberg Section) is finally on his way to Iceland! He plans to walk around 550km unsupported without the safety net of a satellite phone or GPS in a landscape dotted by volcanoes.
