Hey Hector, I may be keen.
I'm fairly new to trad though, I lead Hawk's Eye (13) and Reunion (12) in magalisberg. I wouldn't feel comfortable leading anything over around 15 and maybe around 5 pitches. Are there any routes at Blouberg at that grade ? I suppose I could follow comfortably anything up to an 18 pushing it 20. (On sport I can pretty much onsight 18 red point around 21/22). Do you have an RD for Blouberg?

Hey Gonzo, thanks for the reply. U really need to be pretty comfy with 19/20 to do any of the proper routes at Blouberg. There are a few easier routes around (Great Gulley is supposed to be 14ish and Left Face 16ish) but most people who've done those routes usually end up dong a couple of tricky (18/19) sections. The routes there are long (about 8 - 10 pitches). Its an awesome spot though, even just to go and chill. If I end up going u welcome to come with, but I wont be keen to do Great Gulley etc. I've got an RD which I'll mail if u give me yr address.
