The covid-19 pandemic in South Africa has put the farms in Rocklands under great financial pressure and the very real possibility of the farmers and farm workers losing their land and their jobs. This may lead to the end of Rocklands bouldering.

Through donating, you will be able to contribute to the survival of Rocklands as well as the livelihood of the many farmworkers and their families that these farms employ.

Since 21 September 2020 the Alert level in South Africa has been reduced to the lowest at level 1.

Robert please feel free to update this warnings first post if alert level changes.

Thanks Kai . I think I lack user permissions to do so

Thanks for updating to the current alert level. I do think that when we get back down to level 1/2 after our third wave is over in ~2 months time we could probably remove this warning. Most people in SA are aware, and it doesn't really affect climbing specifically.

Unless you think it's useful for international climbers who might not know to check the COVID restrictions before planning their trips?

As you think my next trip to SA is not scheduled yet and won't be for the near future. May be other SA climbers have an opinion on that? I'm glad to help out.

The presidency has just announced that we've moved back down to alert level 2 as our 3rd wave is almost over. I think we can remove this warning and reinstate a warning if/when another wave starts. Seeing the warning banner on the page for every crag and wall causes warning fatigue, which means people might miss important warnings about loose rocks and other dangers.

Completely agree with Robert, no need for the banner anymore.

Wian van Zyl go ahead and resolve the issue if you think it is appropriate.
