The Traverse

On Saterday morning myself and Don Marx performed an extremely groovy mountain traverse up a short and technical Rooi Els peak. We had both wanted to climb the mountain for a while but its one of those you would probably just drive past until someone convinces you to join them. Luckily we both were amped on a hike and this particular morning we were both strapped for time so decided to hit it.

On the way up we were undersold by the angle of the face making it a very interesting ascent especially in the wet conditions. Challenging hikes are of the best kind, when they according to plan.

We found some sweet zones on the way up that are definitely worth revisiting. It took about 2 hours to reach the summit including one large break under an overhang while it was raining and then we started the descent down the back, less serious, side of the mountain. 

Will definitely be back because there is a young ridge aching to be explored.

pre-spring spit braai

Good times at the seaside this weekend. The sun was around and the wind wasn't shy. It was a good Saterday to be getting salty.

The next two weeks are stacking up to be big time brain busters. Till next time sunshine \m/

I rewarded myself with a most relaxing weekend on the amazing feat of becoming a 22 year old male man. Twenty two years I have been on this earth, I think that is quite spectacular! No drinking this weekend good people. Only mellow vibes and good memories.

weekend wagers

I had a splendid day on Saterday exploring some young coast section followed by some seriously needed relaxtion at Koeel bay thereafter. While both yesterday and today have been strong academic days, I intend on visiting the saline sea solution tomorrow. That's right uh huh oh yeah!

Be genuine and everything else will fall into place. Things start making sense, decision making becomes easier. Don't be fooled by the foolish folk!

Young Leo

Yah bitch yah! Month of birth and all round killer time - August

According to my internal body clock I am aging this month. Twenty two sweet years of existence, oldest I have been yet. I am going to try make this month an exciting one by just doing plenty of outdoor activities in Stellenbosch and hopefully get some sweet salty sea nectar all over my body.

I have taken today rather easy but its time to knuckle into some good steel design material. Ai ye \m/
