South Africa 2005


Back when The Rocklands in South Africa was starting to become discovered/known for climbing we decided to venture there.  Adam and I had met the summer of 2004 and were planning our trip as we planned our wedding.  Lots of newness all around!  That winter we worked in Colorado saving our money as we froze attempting to climb in the Poudre Canyon in frigid temps.  This was Adam's first winter not going to Hueco in many years and my last winter of not calling Hueco home away from home.
