Hi, im Lourens
I`ve been doin serious hikes since shorttly after conception,but i do find myself always gazing up at all those towering cliffs above me! I would love to start climbing! My problem is that i live near a small town in the NW province far from climbing gyms or crags.Any tips on getting started,perhaps a weekend climbing course? Im 32,to late to start?

Hi Lourens,

I suggest to get in contact with the mountianclub of south africa (www.mcsa.org.za). Am shore the northwest have a section as well. I know johannesburg has meets almost every weekend (hiking and climbing) of which most meets are in the magaliesberg. They also do beginners courses on rock.

Cheers,

W

Definitely not too late to start. I think the Magaliesberg Section would be the closest to you - http://mag.mcsa.org.za
Also check out http://www.saclimb.co.za/cip_northwest.html (Anyone got any info on the Potchefstroom Crag??)
Enjoy it :D
