Chosspile is Joburgs best local crag. If you climb there now is the time you give back a bit. See the news article also.

Start is at 8-9 am, if early meet at Mt Amanzi, if later, see you at the crags.
Free braai afterwards (3 ish) for those who helped. Bring your own drinks.

Neil needs help with the path work. Bring spades and picks if you have.

I need 3-4 bolters, ideally with drills. I will have 1 spare drill and plenty of bits. Bolting experience essential.

Plan is to rebolt:

Gollum
Shortcut to shrooms
Gandalf
old bolts on Dont Deck
Grimslade
The bolts on these climbs are minging, i wouldnt even fall on them!

The MCSA Joburg and Magalies Sections are sponsoring the bolts, hangars, chains. Big respect to them!
I will bring kilos of wors, rolls, chill sauce and everything for the braai.

Please indicate if you will be coming and what you will help with, just reply to this thread..
Its free access too all climbers helping out on the day.

It will be lekker!

Thanks Ebert. You can do Grimslade. Remember to use Pratleys to cover the old hole. I will stash the bolts near the base, call me when you there so I can explain where.

So no other helpers?! I know a bunch of guys who climb at Chos week in week out for years...do what is right, please help me with this.

Hi Andrew

We have about 8 confirmed helpers and money paid for 4 workers. I will be bringing one worker and the other 3 are meeting us at Mt Amanzi at 8:30, all arranged via our contacts at the local community. We will need tools for these guys as well.

Some of the old guard have come forth, like 'knights of the chossy table' they will serve us with their drills.
Thanks Colin and Greg.
