Jimmy and Daniel are in South Africa for the next several weeks taking advantage of the winter temps in the southern hemisphere. They’ve already gotten busy repeating some of the hardest lines the area has to offer, as well as putting up some new ones. We should see a new 8C or two by the end of this trip!
