Partner - JHB 2005/02/21
I will be down in Jberg for a few extra days around April 1 and will need a partner. I will probably make trip down there in the future as well. I would prefer to just bring my personal gear to climb, you know harness, shoes, chalkbag, few biners and belay device. If need be I can bring gear and draws with me too. I am up for anything, would prefer trad, but will go sport climbing and even boulder (not that I can really boulder though).

I am pretty easy to get along with, 35 year old male, US ex-pat living in Rwanda. I have been climbing for 14 years, all over the States and Canada.

So help, see you soon.
