Cold Fusion (26), Energy Crisis Prow, goes down!


On Good Friday 25 March 2016, Hilton Davies and Anthony Hall, finally sent their outrageous project through the centre of the Energy Crisis Prow at Wolfberg in the Cederberg.

Cold Fusion (26) takes a steep, bold line that has been avoided by all the other routes up the Prow, until now.

I had the dubious pleasure of hanging on the very tip of the Prow for a few hours in fairly blustery conditions with my camera, to capture the glory of the moment.

Look out for the full story and killer images of their adventure in the June Issue of SA Mountain Magazine.
