Trying to get my hands on the Spitzkoppe climbing guide. Does any one have one for sale/ borrow, or failing that know any websites with comprehensive topos.

Cheers

It can be bought online eg https://www.montaguclimbing.com/shop/guide-books/spitzkoppe-pontoks-namibia-a-climbers-paradise/

I have been there twice in the last few years (it is a fabulous place!) and have a destination article pending on UKC with plenty of practical information. There is some info online but actual topos are hard to come by. You definitely want the guidebook. Reluctant to part with my copy of the guide but do get in touch if you want any info.

Also, the Nam climbing club are a great group and have lots of info on their site that's not in the guide yet: https://www.mcnam.org/
