Paul Robinson, who has been exploring the bouldering around Cape Town, South Africa for the last month or so, has made the first ascent of A simple knowing,an 8-move 7C+ into a 3-move hard, at Topside just south of the city.
Paul feels the problem weighs in at around low end 8C, making this the 7th of the grade in the last year for him.
Of course I will get a hold of Paul for a chat as soon as I can, but I've got a feeling he will be roaming the blocs most of the time for the next couple of weeks as his time in South Africa is drawing to a close.
