Unfortunitaley moving from Ct meant leaving all my friends who have car loads of trad gear behind, and of cause TM. So now I'm in JHB and looking to climb in the fernkloof area. Was wondering if anyone could give advice on what gear is required and in what order. Ie what size cams, are hexes useful, do you need double ropes and how easy are the routes to follow? Any advice would be great thanks.

Fernkloof has a lot of good sport routes. The Magalies in general requires two trad ropes and 50m is enough. I would recommend a full set of rocks (nuts), and a full set of Alien cams and one medium sized 2" and one 3" cam. With that you will climb most if not all the routes safely. 2 short slings and 2 long draws and 6 short quick draws.
