Rocklands Bouldering

Rocklands is found in the Cederberg mountains 250km/3 hours north of Cape Town. It is a very beautiful area in a semi-desert setting, very isolated and very safe. Rocklands is undoubtedly famous for it's world class bouldering but this should not deter you from sampling the fine sport climbing. There is a large variety of quality climbing of all grades in both bouldering and sport climbing. All the sport routes are single pitch and you will have to do a small amount of walking to get to the different areas. Most of the original climbing is situated on CapeNature land and thus day or week permits must be obtained.

From 1 June 2014 no access allowed anywhere in Rocklands without this permit.

Traveller's Rest offers the following popular climbing areas: Sassies, Eight Day Rain, Danger Zone and Eland Camp.

IMPORTANT: In bouldering season the restaurant at the farm stall is open from 08:00 until 22:00 to accommodate the boulderers for their meals.
