Actually a lot of people do care; get to know Ebert and see past the young abrasive outer and you find a guy who is deeply passionate about his sport, trains hard, motivates others and he cares for the crags and loves the natural places we climb, I have often seen him picking up other peoples stompies as an example or heard him raving about the beauty of a kloof. Our crags are in good hands if all our younger climbers were like him. Well done Forket, well deserved. Now go open our (Gauteng climbers) first 8c! ANdrew

A great thanks to everybody, but most of all to Andrew. You have stirred something in the youth of Gauteng that's created an immense psych that has only started brewing now and that knows no bounds. Sending a 33/8b+ is a great accomplishment for myself, but the hunger for harder keeps me craving to train harder and keep raising the bar in SA. No I am not satisfied yet. Everybody always goes on about how great Africa is, so lets start showing the world the power that surges through our veins. This is the first, but not the last.

Ebert,
