"New" spot - Thabaphaswa

Just a quick note - was out to Wellingtons Dome the other week and came across a place I've not heard of before called "Thabaphaswa". Details up on the wiki: Thabaphaswa routes

quite coincidently we were talking about the exact same spot last night- Some of the more mature climbers said its not nice climbing and usually have extremely hard starts.

Very PC of you :wink:

Deon says there was a write up some years ago in a MCSA journal. When we were there it was extremely hot and I only got on the 19 and the 2 pitch 16 route, both of which I quite liked - I can't speak for the other routes. It's very much like Wellingtons Dome I think - same rock, first pitch / section hard and then it eases up as the angle does.
