Climbing, I dig it. It is a sport that requires physical and mental strength. Climbing teaches me to believe in myself and to never give up. I started climbing after a gap year from school with which I went sailing for 7 months. I needed something else that I could escape the fast paced society we live in. Climbing is that escape for me. The outdoor sport routes I have done are a multi-pitch 'if i go it will be double' (24) in Montagu and an onsight of 'church of Frederico' (23) at the steeple in Montagu. I haven't climbed much outdoors but slowly and surely I'm gathering cool sport and tradding routes in the Western Cape. My climbing career is young (2 years) and there is still so much to do. My goal is to climb on the El captain face in Yosimite valley, California.
