Are you a fan of climbing Abseiling or do you prefer?

Go on vacation anytime soon? Tired of climbing with the masses? Planning a trip climbing in the southern hemisphere, perhaps?
You really can not do an article on an abseiling because nine times out of ten is a good climb in the same area (obviously not true), so here are some interesting places in the South to do both. ..
South Africa
You are pampered in South Africa. There is a wealth of majestic mountains ideal for climbing adventures. How to rank up in South Africa? They use a simple numerical system:

The Oribi Gorge in KwaZulu-Natal was created over millions of years when the river carved its way Umzimkulwana on the Flat Rock, finding faults in the stone and eroding enormously deep and narrow gorges. At the foot of the cliffs, the rocks are one billion years, while the rocks are formed from sandstone deposited about 365 million years ago. Here you can abseil down a 110m mountain or climb one of the many challenging tracks on offer. Another interesting is reduced along the cascade of Howick in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal.
Blouberg Massif is a short walk from both Botswana and Zimbabwe. This is a quartzite mesa 1,200 m is the sun for most of the day, and is considered the toughest Big South Africa's Wall.

Some examples are: Wall of white light (a large wall scary), Psycho Reptiles, White Light, Future Shock, Crack of Adventure, Road to Nowhere, Hey Jude, boar, Tequila Sunrise, Moonshadow Teddy Bear's Picnic and Wow Fuck a name only a few ...
Milner Amphitheatre Western Cape is a double wall of orange rock at different levels in Hex River mountains. He sits beside a waterfall next to the 2000 ft. This is an area with excellent multi-pitch sport climbing and pitch, making it one of the best climbing in South Africa. There is access to this sensitive area so it is best to get in touch with a local club to check the rules and regs MCSA.
And of course there is Table Mountain. How can you talk about climbing in South Africa without taking the famous Table Mountain and the iconic in the discussion. Table Mountain climbing is a very popular pastime. There are well-documented climbing routes of varying difficulties to the many faces of the mountain. As the mountain is part of the Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site which can not be done by running here and only traditional climbing is allowed. business groups also offer abseiling from the top cable station. The cable car also offers a fast descent!
The Giant's Castle, Natal Drakensberg massif offers some technical ice climbing rather as a variant of the climb. These are the highest in southern Africa and spectacular mountain range. It also has the regions only consistently by ice and snow routes. Most documented routes are either pure water or pure snow-ice snow, but there are some streets that require mixed. Giants Castle itself is situated on the south side of the massif. Icing late May to late August. The best time is usually mid to late July. Several major climbs, these peaks and several others made first ascents to wait. Most of the unclimbed falls are steep, the multi-pitch routes, serious skill and determination to win will require.
Before leaving South Africa, I had this disturbing photo I've just met - give you an idea of some of the challenging climbs of the region to offer!
And finally for the Southern African region as a fan of you may have heard in the main railway Maletsunyane Waterfall Lesotho. This is a steep decrease of 204 million along the side of the waterfall in the gorge, but Wikipedia has a height of 192m. As you can imagine the view from the top is magnificent. It has the Guinness World Record for the highest commercially run fell over the world and attracts many international results. And climbing at its best and most exciting.

New Zealand
Golden Bay is considered the best limestone climbing in the Pacific, near Abel Tasman National Park. Important also climb the famous Rock Paton Reserve and Payne's Ford. And one of the best concentrations of single pitch sport climbing in NZ (there are also some trails). The advantage of an incredibly beautiful landscape.
Like many other rocks in New Zealand, Paynes Ford was well and truly discovered. The rock offers steep, solid limestone, and includes some of the toughest climbs in the country. Simon and Middle Mass Climber magazine editor Mark Watson brought a book but relaxed definitive guide to the region. Almost from the opening of passage "For those of you that this had not yet we beter now warn you this is a very dangerous, a place where time stands still and hippies zijn plentiful, people naakt swimming is not accepted ' s life seriously.
