Climbing elite make a pilgrimage to the Rocklands - South Africa

Right now, that's all there is to it in the Rocklands. Nalle Hukkataival, David Graham, Daniel Woods, Paul Robinson, James Webb and Alexander Megos, just to name a few. Numerous Swiss were recently or are still in the South African bouldering paradise. Among them Natalie Bärtschi, Remo Sommer and Samuel Ometz.

We have noted some interesting inspections in the past few days and wanted to report about it again and again. But at the current frequency, we simply do not have the time to inform you immediately. So here is a brief overview of what went on in the past few days.

Everything about the 9a-Boulderer Nalle Hukkataival

One of the most active in the Rocklands at the moment is the Finn Nalle Hukkataival, He joins a first ascent to the other (LACRUX reported) and occasionally climbs a line that already exists. Here he succeeds the first ascent of Trust Issues (8b +).

Another first ascent of Nalle is Mask Off (8a).
