South African Sport Route Climbed on Trad

© Jonathan Joseph
In this video we see South African climber Joe Möhle make the first Trad ascent of a sport route that he bolted at a sandstone sport crag, The Hole, near Cape Town.

The route, called Life Enhancement program, is F8a+ to climb on bolts, and involves a really steep and impressive bit of roof climbing - placing a cam from double toe hooks whilst hanging completely upside down.

The Hole crag is one of a few steep sandstone sport crags that surround Cape Town, an area with exceptional climbing in a beautiful setting.

How long until a purist removes the bolts?
