A group of City Rock's "Z Squad" boys, Josh Greaves, Chris Cosser and Alistair Stubbs from City Rock accompanied by their coach Dylan Vogt, were in Oudtshoorn in December. They sent an astonishing THIRTEEN climbs at 8a+ and higher in 8 days, including flashes of “Up for Grabs” and “Mamma Africa” as well as sending “Seven” (8b / 32) and “Street Fighter” 8c / 34)

Chris, who turned 17 on the trip and sent four 8a+ climbs and an 8b, now finds himself the top ranked South African, whilst Alistair at 15 years old, becomes the youngest South African to climb an 8c / 34.

On the Global 8a nu Ranking website for outdoor climbing, Chris Cosser is ranked 8th for boys born in 2000, and Alistair Stubbs 5th in the 2002 age group. He joins Alberto Gines from Spain as the only boys of this age to send 8c / 34 worldwide.
