10 Months Of Climbing Across Africa

“Over the following 10 months, 60-odd (some indeed very odd) climbers from 13 different nationalities joined and left the expedition as the truck rumbled through Africa, from the Middle East overland all the way to South Africa taking in 14 countries, 35 major climbing destinations and countless travelling experiences on the way as we headed off the beaten track and into the rocky wilds of northern, eastern and southern Africa. On the way we’ve bouldered in Sudan, discovered crags new even to Hot Rock in both Ethiopia and Tanzania, clipped the best of the South African bolts and topped out (and sometimes been benighted) on long routes from Rum to the Spitzkoppe, Mount Kenya to Mount Mulanje

Next year they’re going to South America.
