It’s rough coming back to reality after an international trip.  Even rougher when that trip was amazing.  Coming back from South Africa is no exception.  Truly amazing.  My five week trip to the Rocklands was one of my best.  Our time was filled with great people, beautiful landscapes, and delicious food.  And the boulders.  I cant even begin.  All I can say is next time, five weeks is not enough.

 

I climbed many classic V11 and V12’s.  Some of my favorites were Golden Virginia, Witness the Sickness, The Amphitheater, Shosholoza,  and Steak House.  My best efforts were on, Ray of Light, El Corazon, and Amandla.  

I can honestly say that The Rocklands may be the best boulder destination in the world!
