About NSA (New South Africa):

NSA is 5km from anywhere in East London. Routes number 18 and range from 17-24 (5.7-5.11c). Routes are bolted and trad. Rock type is sedimentary/mud stone. Development of this crag was instigated by Jochen Gantert's enthusiasm. We explored NSA after exploring the NATO crag at Nahoon Mouth. It was really vegetated, but after much cutting, cleaning and clearing we found some awesome routes. It's called NSA because in the local township, Cambridge Location, you could see the New South Africa - new schools and new houses in action.
