'Attention has been drawn to the fact that the excellent opportunities for practice in South Africa of this and other sports have in the past been inadequately made known to the public at large, who would be glad to participate in the enjoyments of mountaineering did they but know of the excellent opportunities for this health-giving pastime in South Africa'
