Hi there

I'm looking for a regular climbing partner / a group to join in the Pretoria area - weekends wherever and the (PTA) plastic during the week. I don't climb hard and would like to change that, but I don't have a partner and I suck at self belaying :lol:

Cheers

Just a note if you find a partner: to avoid hectic toll and petrol prices, take the train: http://www.transnetfreightrail.co.za/ShosholozaMeyl/index.jsp?link=timetable&routeid=23

A return ticket is R100, the hours are not great, but catch a nap if you can.

The latest reports were that security is really tight on the trains.

And guess what? It is a lot more environmentally friendly!

:? Load shedding? I dunno :lol:

It is 500m and you there is no worries. If you wish, we can even organise the cops to escort you up. Really.

It is actually quite a fun trip, go for it!
