Heya, particularly hoping Derek might be reading cos apparently he is the dude in this area...

Anyone got some know-how to share on routes in Morgans and Coffee bays? I take it its mostly trad, but are there any sport areas? Anyone know where I might be able to check out a route guide?

There are 554 routes, of which 8 are sport. There are about 6 routes with removable bolts(mixed lines). There is a guide on the KZN MCSA site, but it is way out of date. It will have the basics. I have the 99% up date on my computer... it's too large to e mail. Should have it published early next year.

I also have route discriptions for routes we opened at Hole in the Wall, 10km from Coffee Bay. Awesome adventure stuff, but really crap climbing. Bad Bad Bad. Thats not to say that there is not good stuff some where in that area.

Port St Johns has lots of rock in town. No recorded lines, although some have been opened by Keith James & others..

Let me know if you open anything.
