Two P's and an FA

The last weekend of June saw several good sends in Cape Town. At Coppermine in Redhill, Andrew Wood and Mat Rowe got the 2nd and 3rd ascents of the super classic "Pandemonium" 7C, both on their second sessions on the problem. Andrew then found an alternate sequence for "Panic Room" 7C+, bypassing the crux pull of a poor sloper pinch, but says it probably won't work for taller climbers. Dom Riordan then made 3rd ascent of "Panic Room" the following day, using the orginal method (which may be 8A according to several other cape boulderers). Andrew then continued his great sending form at Bonnydoon in Topside and established an excellent little compression problem named "Real Champs Get Thirsty" after a cheap softdrink company, also somewhere around the 7C+ mark...
