Just note that the Canyon at Kloof is currently closed due to eagle mating season.

What grade do you climb at?

I believe so. Not 100% sure though.

I might be able to join you at Kloof gorge in the next week or so (I might have to head that way for business - I don't know if you can do some climbing on a weekday in the afternoon?)

There are 3 (easy) trad lines at Rumdoodle I would like to try out - I would be happy to belay you on tough sport routes if you are happy to second some easy trad routes (the hardest is a 12).

Canyon is the only crag closed at the moment. Local climbers make missions to the crags around Kloof gorge and Shongweni regularly and i'm sure someone would be happy for you to go along with them. If you're in the Pinetown area, pop in to Southern Rock http://www.southernrockgym.co.za/ and meet some of the guys who train there. They'll be able to help you out.
