September sends

Greg Streatfield put his newly accquired "Boogie Nights" power endurance to good use and made fast work of "The Untitled Symphony of Self Destruction" 7C+ at Redhill.

Mat Rowe took a trip to Rocklands over the long weekend and sent "Hole in One" 7C+ at the Plateau boulders after a couple of tries with only one pad and no spotters.

Staying in Rocklands, Jon Reading sent "Witness the Sickness" 8A, a compression problem close to the De Pakhuys campsite as well as the classic dyno "Hole in One" 7C+ at the Plateau boulders. At the Hidden Boulder, Scott Noy climbed "Throwing Yourself Away" 7C+ which is to the right of "Born Into Struggle" after a crucial hold broke.

eZemvelo has been closed to the public until the environmental assessment has been completed. Brian Weaver did manage to get in one more first ascent with "Escaping Paranoid Slopers" 7C.

Julia Chen made a fast second ascent of "Pyrrhic Victory" 7B, a low roof problem at Redhill before returning to Echo Valley at Topside to add a topout to "Shrek". "Shrek 2" 7B+ now climbs all the way to the top of the boulder instead of stopping at the good hold 2m up, adding dicey 6C climbing above a horrible landing.
