Kingston...New Zealand... The legend says that Bob Marley used to climb around the area a few decades ago and left behind some choice climbs...'I shot the Sheriff' and 'Get up Stand up'. This is where a group of six of us headed Saturday 13th November to retrace Bob Marley's life...on the rock! Jess, Keith, Manisha, Dave & Dave, and Guillaume had a social time on the Kingston schist and finished with a cold (sandfly free) proper beer at the train station pub. For Big Dave it was his first top roping climb outside on the real stuff and for Manisha her first multi-pitch on Get up Stand up. Keith on-sighted I shot the Sheriff which is a 3 pitch climb with a cruxy overhang on the second pitch graded 20.
Next Friday do not forget to turn up at Revolver (NOT at the High School anymore) to check what Niall and Rupert have been up to overseas: Big Wall Climbing and Base Jumping. Cool Pictures and videos and some social times. Meet at Revolver at the back room in between 7 and 7:30 Friday 19th November and if we are enough members we may get a deal on drinks too.
