Searchable MCSA Journals

Post by Nic Le Maitre »

Hi there

Some kind person has posted searchable versions of the MCSA Journals Index from 1979-2016. https://sites.google.com/a/mcsa.org.za/ ... al-indices

They are apparently working on the earlier ones and will release them soon.
Happy climbing

This is really cool for anyone interested in the history of climbing in southern Africa. Must you be a member of the MCSA to access the journal libraries?

No idea to be honest

I have a collection dating back to 1939 that I can scan some pages from if you want some thing specific

I am sure you can just go to any Mountain Club Office and read the journals. We at CityROCK also have a lot of them on a shelf in our coffee shop....

Thanks for the info. Does CityRock JHB have a collection as well? I'll be there tomorrow.

The MCSA offices are at CityROCK. They obviously have all the old journals. Not sure of their opening hours. Will update this later....R
