For this week’s beta binge we leave Montagu for a change and head to The Mine, Muizenberg, Cape Town.
Here we take a look at “A Gift of Wings”. It is considered hard for the 28(7c) grade and also one of the most spectacular looking climbs in the Western Cape.
If you want to jump to the crux action: 1:02
Take a look at this amazing footage by Jan Fischer of Chris Barker sending it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEmDl… Chris also takes a lekker whipper that you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGdTm… Mountainproject describes the route perfectly: “Benchmark for the grade. 11a to the roof, pumpy rail to the lip, followed by a HARD, airy boulder problem to pull onto the head wall. Continue straight up to the anchors of Swan Lake.” (https://www.mountainproject.com/route…)
