Joe Möhle Awarded the MCSA Supertramp 2011 Award

Five applications from prospective Supertramps intending to go tramping from as far afield as the Himalayas to our own back yard in South Africa were received for the 2011 MCSA Supertramp Award. In a close race the award of R15 000 was awarded to Joe Möhle, a Cape Town based climber, to explore the mysteries of the Atlas Mountains and Tafraout in Morroco.

Explaining his choice of destination Joe said: “Morocco has mystical appeal, being predominantly Islamic, with Spanish and French influences, but located in Africa. It seems to be a country where the landscape and culture complement each other in their diversity. The Atlas Mountains boast excellent quality climbing of all forms: Alpinism, multi-pitch sport/mixed as well as bouldering.”

The MCSA Magaliesberg (Pretoria) Section wishes Joe well on his Supertramp expedition, especially on his objective of opening new routes.
