First Ascents For Paul Robinson In South Africa

DPM caught up with Paul Robinson who spent the past couple of months exploring a newer area in South Africa called Three Corners:

On my fourth trip [to South Africa], I was told vaguely about some boulders in the middle Cederberg and wanted to go see what I could find.  I drove out there with the “Chasing Winter” crew (Carlo Traversi, Ashima Shiraishi) and we spent a few days hiking and exploring the zone. I didn’t really have the eye then to see the potential that I did this past trip. I am so glad I gave the area another chance because in 2012 when I went, I wasn’t able to see the massive potential of the area.

The potential he found included the problem pictured below called In the Depths of Solitude which could be as hard as V15.  In addition, Robinson opened a slew of other double digit problem including three V13s and a good number of more moderate problems as well.
