Partners for scrambles and moderate rock climbs on TM?

Post by MountainRelativist »

Hey all! I'm looking for partners to do some scrambling (/moderate rock climbing) on Table Mountain, I have a copy of Tony Lourens' Table Mountain Classics and am looking to do the sort of routes as found in that book. I have little rock climbing experience: I joined the MCSA's trad rock meet on the Ledge this year and loved it! I've also done some sport climbing at Silvermine on top-rope. I've done many scrambling routes up Table Mountain -- my favourites are Spring Buttress, Hiddingh-Ascension and Window Gorge :) Please send me a pm if you're interested :thumright

Hi there

I'd suggest that you have a look at the Cape Town MCSA calendar
Happy climbing

Hey there

Funnily enough I was going to post something similar.

I was on TM on Sunday (06/06) intending to do Kloof Corner Ridge but the friend I was with wasn't too comfortable on the chains and scramble.

We eventually did the contour path all the way to Devil's Peak and I summitted it as I had never hiked it. Fantastic. I'm keen to go back and do KC Ridge if you are? We are also planning to do India Venster soon.

I'm also a sport climber and I have no problem doing some lead climbs to get you comfortable on top rope. Just looking for a climbing buddy TBH.

Hi Nic.

I'm a MCSA member and I get their 'meets' emails regularly but very seldom see climbing meets. Are there separate groups?

Hey!
Have quite a bit of time on my hands and would also be keen to do some scramble-y hikes - like Spring Buttress, which is awesome!
I can lead climb but don't have my own rope and gear and most of the climbs are front face trad from my understanding.
Drop me a message if you want to link up! Cheers, Jade

Hi
I lead for MCSA as and when I can
FYI there'll be a few rock meets July August and September so look out for them
Climbs to look forward to
Bullshoot, Jacob's Ladder, Cableway Crag
D hikes like spring step over, Venster Buttress and porcupine anvil as well as porcupine buttress north face will happen between now and Christmas.
And my very own "Rock meet Special" which will be a composite route of Africa Eyrie Atlantic Crag and Africa Corner
Cheers and keep your eyes open
Brian
You are only as good as your last piece
