Everest (Harrismith) climbing weekend

Post by speckwurst »

MCSA KZN - colourful tights climbing weekend at Mount Everest (near Harrismith) - 17 - 19 February 2017:

The weekend starts on Friday (morning - for those who have the luxury of making it a three day thing) and climbing continues to Sunday.

The difference is that climbing in colourful tights is highly recommended (or at least colourful attire, if you do not wish to grace the others with too much detail of your derrière).

Climbing: lots of single and multi-pitch sport and trad climbing.

Beginners: you are specifically invited to come along and try out climbing. There will be cool MCSA peeps (in their colourful tights) to help and show you the ropes...

Saturday evening will be the "Potjie and Punch" dinner competition (groups), so brush up on those two staples.

There is camping (R80 pp) and a wide variety of chalets (from around R200 pp). Check it out on their website http://www.goeverest.co.za.

There are other fun activities on the farm, like foofy sliding and mountain biking.

If this sounds like fun, RSVP. We'll take accommodation / transport / gear / potjie & punch groups etc. from there.
