Climbing Partner Wanted

Post by MiaC » Thu Oct 06, 2016 10:06 pm

Hey Everyone!

I am moving to Cape Town in a few weeks for 12-14 months. I am looking for a climbing partner or someone willing to introduce me to the climbing scene! I'm safe and reliable! I'm currently pretty serious about training (we'll see what happens when I get there), but you don't have to be. Looking to push myself but have lots of fun! I'm packing light so I won't have any gear, but am willing to get some for sure!

If it matters at all, I'm 22, female

Hi Mia

I can show you around. I have a rope and draws but you should bring basic gear if you are planning to climb. I don't climb super hard but need a training partner during the week and try to climb most weekends. What grades do you climb? Trad, sport or bouldering ?

Look me up when you get here - 0836673371

Hey Mia, I sent you a pm with my number.
Gimme a shout if you're keen to check out Cape Town's bouldering scene.

I'll have my basic gear but no rope or quick draws or anything for trad. I'm most familiar with sport and bouldering but am interested in trad too. I climb 21/22 (5.10+/5.11- on our U.S scale) currently, but push myself on harder roots so I'm not afraid to try roots harder than my current grade. I haven't been leading too long (loving it!) but I've been belaying my dad since I was 11 so I have a ton of experience with that. Once I figure my phone stuff out I'll contact you for setting something up!

Hi Mia,
I'm a climber from the US working in Cape Town for the next 3 months. I'm trying to break in to the climbing scene here and get out and climb as much as possible on weekends. I'm mainly a boulderer (just acquired a crash pad) and also have trad and sport gear. I'll definitely be trying to go to Rocklands in the near future. Shoot me a whatsapp when you get here if you want to climb on a weekend! 19073179699
Cheers,
Devin

Hey all,

I'm here from the states until dec 23rd, and would love to go out climbing of any kind. I'm pretty experienced bouldering and sport climbing but am keen to try some easy trad if anybody wants to take out a rookie. I only have basic gear (shoes, harness, grigri) but can give some cash for gas/petrol and promise to be good company and a safe belay. Hope to hear back soon, feel free to message here or on facebook.

I'd like to play too! I'll be visiting Cape Town from March 23 to April 1(ish) and then again around May 8. Super interested in some outdoor (especially setting up for top rope or sport) and am trying to find a crag for March 26th... I'll be travelling internationally, so will have limited gear, but have rope and give great belay. Probably shouldn't promise to be able to do more than 19 outdoors (though certainly willing to try) and can do 22/23 indoors, I'm a petite lady and would especially love to connect with other short ladies who climb hard.
