Einschränk. übernommen von Rocklands

As of 2014, no climbing is allowed in Rocklands without a valid climbing permit. Land owners often conduct inspections in the climbing areas and anyone found without a permit will be asked to leave the climbing area. Permits can be obtained online - www.quicket.co.za - or purchased at CapeNature's Kliphuis campsite office; De Pakhuys campsite office; or Traveller's Rest farmstall and restaurant.

Ethik übernommen von Rocklands

  1. Bury your faeces and carry out your toilet paper. If the ground is too hard to bury your faeces, please carry it out with you and dispose of it in the campsite bins. Poop bags are available for free at De Pakhys. (A special note about this: Tea Garden has been closed primarily due to this problem. Animals such as baboons may eat human faeces and could contract diseases such as Tuberculosis and hepatitis, which could prove detrimental to the population)

  2. Do not litter – carry everything you bring in with you back out with you and dispose of your litter in the bins at the campsite.

  3. Stick to the allocated paths marked by cairns and as illustrated in the guidebook. Diverting from these paths causes far more erosion than is necessary and may cause the extinction of certain sensitive plants in the area.

  4. No graffiti on rock surfaces. (Black Shadow boulder has been closed to climbing due to graffiti)

  5. No pof is allowed in Rocklands. The resin damages the rock surfaces and this damage is irreversible.

The complete disrespect of boulderers for the land on which they climb is a very serious and has become a very real threat to bouldering in Rocklands.

Rocklands bouldering is in peril. Rocklands does not belong to the climbers.

Our access is not a right, it’s a privilege and our treatment of the land is the difference between us being allowed to climb in Rocklands and us being banned from climbing in Rocklands altogether.

Irresponsible boulderers have caused this problem and boulderers are the only ones who can fix it.

Please respect the land you climb on in South Africa and adhere to the above mentioned rules. Your privilege to climb in Rocklands depends on it.

Start 15m left of the start/ grey open book on 'Butterfinger Crisp'

  1. 30m (18) From a boulder, pull onto the face and up to a tiny platform. Head straight up a system of vertical cracks and small corners to the huge ledge. Walk 15m right.

  2. 25m (21) Just right of a huge boulder, pull up into a very wide crack that almost forms a corner that arches up and left. Step left onto a face and up and to a small tree. Pull up past the tree and up the steep layback above. Move 5m right to a belay.

  3. 30m (17) Climb a few meters up a fin at the base of a grey corner. Step left on the face and head diagonally up and left to a narrow corner (with a fused seam). Follow this to a ledge and belay 5m right of some abseil tat.

  4. 20m (16) Head up an orange ramp tending right to the steep wall of chicken heads. Follow this straight up to the top. This is likely the same finish as 'Butterfinger Crisp'
