After the gruelling semi-finals the day before, many of the finalists were feeling their previous efforts as they walked along the pathway up to the main wall to face the last day of climbing.

Rock and Road top three places
I arrived to take a few pics of the setting and found young Guy Patterson-Jones pulling the rope through on a non-contest route, Sid Vicious (27).
Today we didn’t wake up in baking hot tents. While pondering how it was nice to be in my sleeping bag I realised that it must be quite nice sending weather too, and things that looked certain yesterday may not look so certain today.
Yes! The sun! The rain predicted for Tuesday never materialised, meaning that a full day of climbing lay ahead.
I turn over and go back to sleep with the knowledge that we’d have some rather bleary-eyed competitors in the morning, and we would indeed be able to go ahead with day two of the PETZL Rock & Road Trip Western Cape 2010 on Table Mountain.
The mentor day is aimed at initiating development in the specific province in which the event takes place.
Saturday the 11th of December saw the first real day of climbing for the PETZL Rock & Road Trip Western Cape 2010.
The Petzl / MCSA Rock and Road 2010 kicks off with a slide show at the MCSA on Friday night!
Everyone is invited to climb, both to support the rock and road climbers and cheer them on as they start their journey as well as to celebrate the fantastic bouldering the Cape has to offer.
This is an invitation to young climbers to take part in the “Rock and Road” mentor day.

The grand final of the MCSA Rock and Road trip 2007
As you are probably already aware 25 of SA strong climbers came together to
part take in a little climbing competition.
It had been a busy week, with lots to keep the Rock and Road climbers busy, Indoor Comps, mentor days, flash contests and ferocious red-pointing. They had all had a day of rest and now the finalists had one last day of climbing to prove their mettle. Before long things were falling into place, with the big screen and cameras getting ready to roll.
