I'll hazard a guess and say 22??

Hector Pringle on Spicy Chakalaka, Last Crag of the Century, Boven. It looks "improbable", he said. Can you guess the grade?

if you use draw extensions then you might make it a bit easier, not only on yourself and the grade, but also on your rope:)

Access has been great. Parking inside the St John's school the security guard has the key to the wilds and with regards to safety we haven't experienced anything. And really hope not too. :thumright

I used to love the wilds. The full traverse is probably the longest I've ever spent on a project. What are the brown streaks from though, don't remember them being there before.

Agree with Johann. Awesome pic, awesome looking route.
I think that I read somewhere that it's Hector Pringle. The route looks tough and if it's a Hector 23R then it's tough!
Big H - that you?
Blyde?

Hector also came to mind when I was wondering who it was.

Would you believe it is grade 19 (except the last pitch)
