After the gruelling semi-finals the day before, many of the finalists were feeling their previous efforts as they walked along the pathway up to the main wall to face the last day of climbing.
I arrived to take a few pics of the setting and found young Guy Patterson-Jones pulling the rope through on a non-contest route, Sid Vicious (27).
Today we didn’t wake up in baking hot tents. While pondering how it was nice to be in my sleeping bag I realised that it must be quite nice sending weather too, and things that looked certain yesterday may not look so certain today.
Yes! The sun! The rain predicted for Tuesday never materialised, meaning that a full day of climbing lay ahead.
I turn over and go back to sleep with the knowledge that we’d have some rather bleary-eyed competitors in the morning, and we would indeed be able to go ahead with day two of the PETZL Rock & Road Trip Western Cape 2010 on Table Mountain.
The mentor day is aimed at initiating development in the specific province in which the event takes place.

The Petzl / MCSA Rock and Road 2010 kicks off with a slide show at the MCSA on Friday night!
Micheal’s winning Supertramp 2010 application was for the Chambe West Face Direct on Mount Mulanje in Malawi. They travelled up from SA through Mozambique to Malawi in (4×4?) style in Michael’s moms Opel Corsa Lite.
