Formal Dinner on Amphitheatre

Date: 23-24 April

I want to do a formal dinner on the Amphitheater Drakensberg on weekend of 23/24 April. Gents: suit and tie, ladies: evening dresses. Be as fancy as you like: tables, chairs, candles, whatever you feel like lugging up the chain ladders. If you are single, feel free to invite a date/porter.

For those who haven't been there before: it's a bit of a hike and the weather doesn't always play along, but that's all part of the fun :)

Sport Climbing Youth Meet at Mt Everest

The MCSA Youth meet will be held at Mount Everest Mt Everest Guest Farm near Harrismith over the following days:

  1. Friday, 29th April, departing 15h00 from CSIR South gate in Meiring Naude Str (Conference Centre entrance).
  2. Saturday, 30th April, all day climbing
  3. Sunday, 1st May, all day climbing
  4. Monday, 2nd May, climbing in morning, arriving 17h00 at CSIR South gate.

If there is a bigger group we will organize transportation arrangements beforehand.

The MCSA Youth meet is aimed at giving sport young climbers an opportunity to get to Mt Everest Harrismith over the long week-end to enjoy some new routes and improve their climbing. We intend to climb together – daily as a group - in various areas with routes in the 16 – 24 range - so a little more than ‘totally beginner’ level. Most of the climbing will be on top rope. We will provide ropes and sport racks, if required, I will check on this before we depart. If there is particular interest, we will climb some easier multi-pitch routes like Fight the Feeling or Power Pigeon in selected groups.

We will be staying at the Mt Everest Guest Farm (Tel: 082 3005999, Petrus, Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). I will be sponsoring accommodation at  the Aarendkop chalet, which can sleep up to 10 persons – there are still 6 spaces. This chalet provides cutlery crockery, mattress and bedding although we normally take a sleeping bag also.  Typically there will be an evening braai fire or the electric cookers can be used if it rains. Please bring your own meals and food. Any adults accompanying their kids are welcome.

Blouberg BMC-MCSA Trad Exchange

Date: 4-7 March


Many moons (~15 years) ago, the MCSA and the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) held an exchange trad-climbing meet in which knowledge was shared, muscles were bared, beers were drunk and relationships were formed. It was so much fun that Ed February and Snort have decided it is high time for another.
