Hanging Out

Wits Mountain Club (WMC) played host to the penultimate round of the National Bouldering League (NBL) on Wednesday, March 14. The league has over 500 competitors from all over the country. The competition runs for six weeks and the finals will be held on March 24 at the SA Climbing Academy in Paulshof, Johannesburg. Climbers must participate in at least four sessions to qualify for the finals. This is the first year that Wits has entered a team into the NBL, and the team is one of the smallest in the competition. “WMC is an active and vibrant club,” said chairperson Luke Worster. “We train twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5.30pm. We also do core training on Wednesday mornings. We try and go climbing as often as possible and there is usually climbing happening every weekend.”
