On 29 November 2014, Garvin Jacobs, husband of Mie Elsen and an avid local rock climber, climbed 40 sport rock climbing routes in one day. This event happened in East London.
The Eastern Province section of the Mountain Club of South Africa supported this event and lots of rock climbers came out to support him. He started at 6 am and finished at 9.10 pm. An inspirational talk was also given by Edmund February, a legendary South African rock climber.
Garvin raised R 135 000 and a resuscitation cart (donated by Siyakhanda).
