Especially when you have the pleasure to spend the summer in South Africa! No matter how sore your muscles are, sitting at the campground in front of the best sandstone boulders ever is a real torture. So my program for the last two month was, to skip most of the rest days and climb as hard as possible.

This trip was my third visit to the Rocklands and they start to feel a little bit like home to me. On one hand, nothing has changed over the last years, the place is still world class for bouldering and the country itself fascinates me every time I go there. On the other hand it impressed me, how many climbers come here compared to the last years. It is amazing to see, how many strong climbers come to the Rocklands! Some problems are always crowded now but luckily the area is huge, so you can also find places where you can still climb in the peace of the nature. Beside of repeating great problems, creating something new and being a little part of the Rocklands climbing history is something fantastic for me. I managed to put up some new boulders like ‘Minimum’ and ‘What a waste of education’.

Stay strong and see you next year at the Rocklands!
