The shlauk is brought by the south-easter so conditions are generally best if it's not blowing.

google can't find that word.

The correct spelling is schlauky.

The correct spelling is SCHLORKY [emphasis on the R you bunch of pseudo capetonians! :bom: ] . SE is only bad when the cloud comes over. Its dry if there is no cloud.

This might help explain which crags can get Shlauky: http://www.climbing.co.za/wiki/index.ph ... wn#SE_Wind

Slime + Chalk = Shlauk

Slalk or Chime just doesn't sound right :-)

hmm... I think we need a spelling consensus.

I don't mind being wrong. Andy & Keith can battle this one out :)

I tried to pronounce that after a few drinks last night. Just ended up saying shitty. Works better and somehow semantically also seemed appropriate. Or maybe it is just the boer in me.
