Proudest Moment Opening my long standing Trad project (Fear and Loathing 7c+) in Mhglabitini kloof took me many years to open Magaliesbergs hardest pure trad line (http://www.climbing.co.za/2015/03/fear-and-loathing-an-interview-with-alex-bester/)

Dreams and Aspirations To kick ass and take names where ever I go , there are so many possibilities out there, it’s hard to choose, one as long as I’m on the road with friends by my side, I’m happy , I’m currently getting psyched on the bigger missions from multi pitch trad  to putting up First ascents in new undiscovered area ,

Still so much to see, so little time 

Career Highlights Gauteng youth team 2009, Sending beast 31(8a+), Competing at Rock Masters 2014, Team send of the 14 pitch New Born 29(7c+), Rock stock winner 2015, Winning the Super Tramp Award 2016

A bit about yourself Born and bred in Pretoria where I started at school when a friend asked me to join him and after that I was hooked, after school I took a few years off to hone my skills by running around South Africa and Thailand absorbing every different element of sport, in these years I found my love for showing people new places that I have called home for many years. So that’s where my love for tourism started so I decided to go study adventure tourism management to see if I can make my love a job. Currently finishing my guiding qualifications planning the next adventures
