The North Dome, Wellingtons Dome

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The North Dome, Wellingtons Dome

This is the dome that the other pics refer to, If you look really carefully you can see the guy in blue 3/4 up the 140m face (and be super impressed at my incredible zoom). Spent the weekend there with the Mountain club, was fanbloodytastic. Usually the mountain club camps next to the lake but for some reason this time we camped next to the farmer's (Jaap) pool in his garden. He also had some impala boerewors and steak that was really tasty. Had a braai on the saturday evening which was really nice, since it was only my second meet it was good to get to know people.

Someone leading on big dreamers

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Someone leading on big dreamers

So as we where driving to the rock we saw this guy near the top so I got a picture. Looks pretty tricky I think that pitch is like a 21 but haven't been there myself so can't say where the crux is. Wellingtons is strange rock (a totally noob opinion) its very fingery, it would be impossible to trad as there are no cracks (almost) almost no jugs, when you find one you yell to your partner how excited you are to have found it then you hang on it for a bit and take a rest cause it's probably the only on on the pitch. 'spose you could use pitons for trad. No idea how pitons work personally.

Me at the Premiere screening of my Experimental film

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Me at the Premiere screening of my Experimental film

It was a good day. People loved me, I made waves. People where moved and disgusted. No one walked out but you can't have it all can you.

Neil leading on the second to last pitch of big dreamers never die

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Neil leading on the second to last pitch of big dreamers never die

Okay so actually they where on a different route but they share most of the first pitches they just branch in different directions at the top. Sorry I can't remember the name of the actual route they where on. And since I can't remember the details I can submit the route either. There was a nest of baby owls on this route and while we where there the mother got rather uptight and swooped on one of the Wits climbers there they backed off after that. Neil was leading this pitch and the meet and his belayer was Lee who was out on a business trip from london and wanted to come climbing, he's only been climbing a couple years but has packed it in and climbs very impresively. Neil is spectacular too, makes it look easy and convinces you somehow that you think its easy too.
