And old classic I understand.

Anybody perhaps have a route description?
I would love to climb it next weekend.

Oh, and is it pronounced "Slang gooly" or like the afrikaans for "Snake oil" - "Slang Olie" ?

It's a great day out!!!

Ross Suter put together a very good RD in the June 03 issue of SA Mountain Mag.

If like me you're a hoarder of anything climbing related, you should still have a copy lying around your loo. If not, I can make you a copy...... how to get it to you by the weekend is 'n ander storie though. What's your gym schedule this week?

Oi Jono...
Long time.

I was out of the country 2003. So I have to relax with copies of far-side and calvin & hobbs on the loo.

Probably will not be at the gym any time you'll be around...busy week, it is, but, if you leave a copy there I can make a plan to have it collected.

I could also collect it from a more convenient place Friday evening.

Oh, its weekend of the 29th, by the way.
Feel like joining us on the route?

....how about taking a photo and mailing it? Just a thought.

Hahaha, I forget that we're in the 21st century..... yes, of course I can scan and mail it to you.

Will sort that out tonight.

Hmmm, weekend of the 29th, sounds like a plan! Got a mate who's keen to get up it too. Will let ya know asap!

Slangolie?
It's a little 'country route in the city'. Last did it with R&R on a 40 degC day. Congrats if you can onsight the crux. Not the move, that's not so bad, but finding where it goes is a bit baffling.

Ross's RD may be better, but it's the kind of route that the original RD lists as "follow the vague rib to the top".

Take care: there have been rescues off this route.
