Does anyone know what the climbs are between Weigh-less crack and Blokkies Joubert at the Other Side crag at Boven? In the old guide there are only two climbs logged (Frequent Flyer, 17 and Voyager, 14) but there are 4 routes there, all look to be of the same age. There was nothing on wiki and even Gus is unsure. Even if someone has done them and can suggest a grade. Its for the guide update. Thanks, Andrew.

There are 3 new climbs at the Other Side listed on the SACIN boven guide which were opened in 2004 and not included in your latest guide. They are not in the exact location you are referring to but there may be some confusion:

I DRINK THEREFORE I AM 15 ** [8D,A]
Start as for 2ND ANNIVERSARY but climb the streep column to the right, finishing just left of the overhang.
First Ascent: Apr 2004 Stephanie Mallory, Bolted: Stephen Malllory

NEARLY HEADLESS NICK 17 *** [10D,A]
Climb the blank face 10m right of 2ND ANNIVERSARY.
First Ascent: Apr 2004 Cara Fleischer, Bolted: Stephen Mallory

ANY OTHER F@CKERS 15 **** [N]
Climbs the obvious crack system 5m to the right of NEARLY HEADLESS NICK. Start 5m lower and to the right of NHN. "A good trad line that should remain unbolted" - Stephen
First Ascent: Apr 2004 Stephen Mallory, Dean Gurney, Cara Fleisher, Stephanie Mallory, Richard Mallory

Thanks Stijn, as you say these are not the ones I was missing, but I did not have these climbs either, i must have a look through the SACIN guide, did u spot any others not in the new guide? Andrew

Hi Andrew,

The routes Up your tree (20 I think?) and I feel rocks(can't remember) seem to have gone missing from Tranquilitas, Grunt area.

Keep sending man
