VIDEO: Europa 8a+, Galaxy Wall KZN
Roger Nattrass takes us through his journey of bolting and climbing of his new route Europa 8a+ at the Galaxy Wall in Kwazulu Natal.
This video is age restricted at Roger’s request and contains some content that is not for young or sensitive viewers.
Europa is the story of an ageing, rock-climbing anaesthesiologist’s journey to complete the first ascent of Europa, a new 30m climbing route, while working on the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic near Durban, South Africa. The all original soundtrack is by Max Nattrass (the protagonist’s son) and is available at maxnattrass.bandcamp.com. Warning: medical images from the operating room form part of the content, hence the suggested age restriction.
Crag Location - Ngede Waterval
The falls are on a farm originally called Kirkwood. On some older maps the falls were called Kirk Falls. New maps have the traditional name.
