1-2-5...CLIMB! 08 - 10 - 2016

The Mountain Club of South Africa has celebrated its 125th birthday on 8 October 2016. Many members and friends have joined in climbing at least 125 routes, hills and peaks; especially on 8 October 2016, but also during the period of 1 to 16 October 2016.

One aim was to increase awareness about the Club and mountains but the second was also to mountaineer, climb and have fun!

The oldest participant, Merv Prior (91-years-old) rock-climbed on Arch Rock at Keurboomstrand and the youngest participant Alex Harvey (8-months-old) was in a carrier on his father’s back on the Magaliesberg near Wonderboom. At one event – the Priors - four generations were present and the Maggs managed three.

Interesting peaks summited outside of SA included Mt Jeonwu in South Korea, a volcano - Piton de la Fournaise - in Reunion and Mt Kosciuszko in Australia. A night mountain rescue practice was conducted. Some fun events also took place such as a formal dinner that was held on top of the Drakensberg at Mount-aux-Sources as well as a pizza and poker event that took place on Popple Peak.

Explore – Discover - Connect – Protect: Hike or climb! One Hundred and Twenty Five Years of the MCSA!!
