Hello, I am in Cape Town for a few months and would really like to get into climbing. I have only done intro to climbing in the past and some indoor climbing. Ideally I would love to hook up with some people or join a group that teaches set up and techniques. If you are a climber that knows what/he or she is doing, in need of a partner, yet willing to teach a couple of things..I am your girl!

Any advice or contacts would be really appreciated!

Thanks

Hey there.
If you need some basic teaching on safe climbing indoor and outdoors, I would really recommend the 'Intro' and 'Lead' courses that the Perfect Wall provide. Costs are minimal and the teaching solid and simple. There is also opportunity to meet other climbers in need of a partner or two.
visit www.perfecthealth.co.za/wall.htm or email for more info wall@perfecthealth.co.za
:D

Hi Kasia

I would love to help but i would however have to see a photo of you first. Could you possibly post one on this forum? It would also help a great deal if you could disclose your nationality.

Kasia, we drive through from CapeTown to the PerfectWall in Stellenbosch usually twice a week to go climb. You're welcome to join. Drop me a mail : mostertniel at yahoo.com if you're interested.

The mountain club of SA offers free training courses to its members, it also organises climbing meets once a month - great for beginners.

Its good to see so many opportunities available to new/beginner climbers on the scene. Goes to show that our sport is growing and developing more and more. Maybe we can one day see a Springbok Rock Climbing squad sent to some sort of international climbing event... :wink:
Does anyone think S.A. has the caliber climbers available for such a feat???
:D
