I am hopefully going to be climbing at Spitzkop later this year.
Anyone ever climbed there?
Any info on routes/weather/protection/etc would be handy.
If you know the climbing in Namibia,what else would you recommend doing while we are there?

Thanks

I just got back from Spitzkoppe last month. I was really dissapointed with the rock actually...although I was only bouldering. It crumbled like crazy. I lost 4 holds in the first 5 minutes. Maybe it's not so bad higher up...

The Fresh Air Crew made an excelent video about Spitskoppe featuring Jeremy Samson and Justin Hawkins. That will explain everything to you.

I'm going to be in Walvis Bay around mid-November. Is there any climbing in that area? My impression is that most of the climbing is inland (near Windhoek). Any advice?
