Rocklands: a Trad Diary from South Africa by James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini

Published by Mountainblog on .


The Cederberg range of South Africa is home to some of the hardest, most iconic boulder problems in the world! Rocklands is a place known to all, and its name screams one thing – Bouldering! Yet in this vast ocean of Orange rock, bouldering is not the only thing you can find…

In June 2014, Caroline Ciavaldini and James Pearson set off to discover Trad In Rocklands. Originally in search of hard, “cutting edge” new routes, what the couple discovered is perhaps even more valuable! An almost unlimited potential for Trad development, with 1,000’s of new routes to climb! In three weeks the pair barely scratched the surface, but if one thing was clear, it was that this amazing place, a place we all thought we knew, has so much more to give…as you can discover by yourself in the video “Rocklands: a trad diary” produced by La Sportiva.
