A guide to bouldering at Rocklands

by CapeNature

Just the thought of climbing massive rocks without harness or ropes is enough to scare many, but some seasoned climbers recently visited the area and documented just how amazing the experience of bouldering in the Cederberg can be. 

Bouldering at Rocklands

As part of EpicTV’s bouldering series, a group of climbers from America, the United Kingdom and Canada spent a month at Rocklands getting to know the area and exploring the complexities of the thousands of rocks on offer.

The group got to grips with some tough projects, but showed how fun and rewarding it was to spend some time in the Cederberg Wilderness Area.
