A Week Exploring the Rocklands on the West Coast, South Africa

3 Aug 2022

Unpack your crash pads and get your spotter ready for a week of world-class bouldering and sports climbing at the Rocklands. The Rocklands partners have developed more than 1 500 invigorating climbing “problems” at the globally famed northern Cederberg gem, an absolute quintessence of first-class bouldering for seasoned and novice climbers. To keep spirits high when our mountains and boulders have you bonking and bailing, the Rocklands has a phenomenal assortment of activities for you and the family to enjoy.

Rocklands also includes the areas at CapeNature’s Kliphuis, and partner properties at de Pakhuys, Traveller's Rest, Agter Pakhuis and Kleinfontein. This world-famous bouldering destination has a season lasting from May to September every year.

Blaze your trail on 64km worth of unmarked hiking paths and teach the children how to truly immerse themselves in nature. Make sure to keep an eye on the sky for a chance to spot up to 180 different bird species including the rare striped flufftail, Knysna woodpecker, red-winged and redneck francolin, Layard’s tit-babbler, and black-rumped button quail. To top it off you might catch a glimpse of our spectacular eagle species such as the black, martial, crowned, and booted eagles. After a full day of adventuring, set up camp wherever you please and let the starlit sky and tranquil sounds of nature wash over you as you fall asleep. Test your skills on the boulders, rope up for sport climbing, or go for an invigorating walk. Then let the spectacular views and deep quiet of Rocklands wash over you.

Purchase your one-week Rocklands bouldering permit on Quicket now for a chance to claim your spot amongst legends in the bouldering hall of fame.

Let this timeless landscape quench your thirst for climbing while other world-famous sites endure hot summer months.
