My other partner of 35 years, my first wife, did what she does best. She threatened to ground me from visiting my mistress for at least a year if I displayed any impairment or disability or if I whinged or whined.
Two South African trad climbing exchange meets have taken place with the UK to date. The first exchange meet took place almost 20 years ago and then last year the event was repeated. A group of 10 talented UK climbers from the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) visited South Africa for about 12 days and then a group of South Africans returned the visit in May.
After the second successful BMC/MCSA exchange in 2016 members of the South African trad climbing community are again invited to participate in a similar event in 2017.
