Weighbridge Bouldering

Post by ShaolinWood » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:46 am

Hi everyone. I've been deep diving the web for a while now in search of some info on the boulders at the Weighbridge area (Du Toits kloof)
There's a couple of videos of Jimmy Webb and friends sending some hard lines there but can't find any other info.

Is there a secret topo in the hands of the elders of the rock? Is there a cult I can join to be privy to such information?

Cool but any info will be great. Also what's the access situation there? Can you just go and hope to not get shot?

Thanks
Gerhard
Cheers

I've asked Arjan if he would not mind commenting on the area.

Doubtful that you would get shot without at least one warning shot :wink:

Aah awesome thanks Justin. Yea think Arjan is probs the best person to ask. Appreciate that!

Yea I'm hoping for warning shots. There should be plenty of rocks to jump behind once it starts!
Cheers

There is also a good looking crag up right of the main bouldering field - bit of a walk but may be worth checking out.

Nice! Trad lines?
Will definitely check it out.

Walk-ins are standard issue in those parts of the woods :D
