Traversing Devil's Tooth Drakensberg

Paul Fatti and Neil Margetts
Johannesburg Monthly Meeting
Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 19:00

During May 2014 Neil and Paul, together with two friends, made an ascent of the iconic Devil’s Tooth in the Drakensberg, followed by a horizontal 45 metre Tyrolean Traverse from the summit across to the Inner Tower. The talk will cover the history of the first ascent of the Devil’s Tooth in 1950, and then describe  previous attempts, leading up to the final successful climb. The talk will be illustrated with dramatic slides taken by the party.
