Hey Guys,

I am heading off to Fernkloof this weekend to sample some of the climbing there and I'm hoping that someone can help with some route info. There is a section of rock either between the lower area and mirror mirror area or just after the mirror mirror area (Been a while so I forgot where exactly it is). There a number of routes on this section of rock that aren't on the route guide; does anyone know info about these climbs?

Thanks,

Matt

There is one addition to the lower section of Fernkloof, a project by Neil Margetts - a link-up between True Sailing is Dead and Lawyers, Guns and Money.

On the Mirror-Mirror wall (Middle sector), there are two "new" routes:
Bambi and the Broken Leg 22 is just to the right of Erik Rieman's open-book 26. It follows the rightmost crack and onto the arete. great route.
Just right (and around the corner) of Bambi, you will find an unknown and very technical 19 - good warm-up. good route.

On the far left of the Mirror-Mirror section you will find Paul Brouard's ultra-hard Aqualung - this is the leftmost line. Goes at 32 or so. Right of this is Andrew Pedley's project - think it's open, but check with him. Will be VERY hard, in the regions of 32, i guess? to the right of this you'll find the classic Acromax 29, and just right of Acromax there are two new routes - both bolted by Neil. Their crades are in the regions of 24/25. One's name is Lost Ruby (Neil's African Grey escaped when he bolted it...), don't know the other's name. Both are fun routes, not to be under-estimated!

That's about it. Not much more space for new routes, it's filled to the brim!

It's name is Reflected Sins - also one of Neil's routes if I'm not mistaken.
