WP in the EC

A carload of Cape Town boulderers visited the Eastern Cape for the inter-varsity bouldering comp. On the way, they stopped of in Cape St Francis, where Marijus and Edvinas Šmigelskis both flashed the testpeice of the area, "Black Pearl Extension" 7B+ and Edvinas managed to open one of the projects which climbs a short overhanging wall, calling it "Queen of the West" 7C. The UCT crowd then moved on to Hogsback, where a bunch of new problems were established, the highlights where "Limited Edition" 7A by Joe Möhle, "Raptor" 7C by Edvinas and the highball classic "Joe Lives" 7C by Marijus.
