Table Mountain partner 9/10 Nov

Post by ingolf » Wed Oct 09, 2019 9:17 pm

Dear all,
I look for a climbing partner to climb Table Mountain 9th or 10th November, e.g. Africa Crag. Just a few words on my experience so that you know with whom you would climb:

I am German and have a bit less than 10 years climbing experience in the European Alps, Britain, Ireland and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxony and Czech Republic. I do not climb the really difficult grades. So my limit is 6+ UIAA/6a French in a climbing gymn or a well bolted crag. Trad climbing, I lead up to V Saxonian (probably 13 or 14 South African grading or HS British grades) or a well-behaved VI (15/VS). But then I do not mind if I cannot find some protection every few meters (although I feel better if I do) - if I am familiar/comfortable with the type of rock.

I once went with an Irish/Romanian climbing partner who wrote a nice blog, because in our soft sandstone, we are only allowed to use slings and knots for protection:

And I did a few first ascents in Ireland

I hope one of you might be interested!
Cheers
