The likes of Alex Bester (current highest red point grade 30), Brian Weaver (33), Ebert Nel (33), Falco Filotto (31), Ivan Van Der Tang (31) and Jahne Theron (30) will be confronted with lines most have never seen before. The price for not onsighting is getting wet. And the prize for onsighting is also getting wet. Welcome to Deep Water Soloing. No ropes. No bolts or cams. Just shoes, chalk and a cool head when you fall into the water.
The girls won't be standing back either: Eran Waldeck , Gillian Bester, Illona Pelser (29), Tiffany Wells, Wiebke Toussaint and others will see who gets the first ladies DWS crown.
The comp is managed by sport climbers Andrew Pedley and Neil Margetts at Big Pool in Wilgepoort, the wilderness purchased recently by the Mountain Club of South Africa.
