Hi I'll be in Johannesburg from 2 feb to 29. mars and really want to do some climbing while i'm there.

I'm gonna be an elective student in the University Hospital and will work mostly during the week and hoping to do some climbing in the weekends.

I'm from Denmark (actually From Faroe Island a part of Denmark) and been climbing for 3 years and climbing about 6b (French grade system).

Could be cool going to Waterval Wowen one weekend or somewhere else.

Hope to hear form some other climbers :) :thumright

Hi,

I am headed to Jo-burg for work and am looking to climb with someone the weekend of Feb. 8-9. I probably won't bring all my gear, so am hoping to meet up with someone who could share gear and knows how to get to the crag. Will you have gear with you? Have you found weekend climbing partners for Feb? Let me know if you think we could climb together or know how we might get a ride to the climbing areas.

I am an American, living in London, generally climbing 6b/ 6b+ in the gym, leading 6a+ sport outside, and leading trad at American 5.9 or below.

Thanks for letting me know what you've found so far re climbing near Jo-burg.

Liz

Hi guys,

There are numerous climbers out there so no need to not climb. Try the climbing gyms (wonderwall etc.) in the evenings to meet other climbers. There are also always Mountain Club meets every weekend so contact the JHB MCSA for a list.

Otherwise keep posting...

Some of us are heading to Castle gorge in the Magalies this weekend. Picturesque kloof with beautiful waterfalls with some climbing of 1 to 3 pitches. Let me know if you want to join. We know some people driving through from Vanderbijlpark, which is south of Joburg.
