Boven Roc Rally [proper noun] – a phenomenon that is inexplicable by most of society, where rock climbers migrate from all over the country to the small town of Waterval Boven for a long weekend of climbing, hiking, sending, sunshine and a hell of a party…

That has been the norm since 2003 and so far it has been ten memorable years with mega highlights, great guest speakers and phenomenal fun stuff apart from the climbing.

The competition side is unique. Usually climbing competitions happen on indoor walls, where the competitors do not have prior knowledge of the routes. At the Boven Roc Rally climbers test their endurance against their own personal best performances. A handicap team system levels the playing fields somewhat and for the “pro” climbers.

And for non-competing climbers, the Boven Roc Rally is undoubtedly the yearly highlight of the climbing scene.

Cost & Payment Info

R350 per person (Youths, Students and MCSA members – R300). To qualify for discount, please supply a scan of the relevant ID along with your proof of payment. Registration Fees can be made via bank transfer. This includes your event shirt, breakfast roll & coffee on Saturday morning as well as supper on Saturday night.

    I’m in desperate need of a climbing partner for the rock rally. I’m currently climbing in the 17-18 range. Please let me know if you find yourself in the same predicament and want to partner up with me.

    • Jaco Sep 17, 2013 at 8:44 am #

      Hi Rinus. Found a buddy yet? I’m also climbing more or less in your range and I am also looking for a buddy. Let me know.


    • Nicholas Sep 17, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

      Hi Rinus and Jaco
      I’m also climbing in that range and looking for a buddy.
      Bring on the weekend 😀

  14. Rinus Sep 5, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    I am dying to come but do not have a climbing buddy. Anyone keen to partner up with a stranger? I’m currently climbing in the17 – 18 range.

    Its going to be an awesome comp, and you guys better pack your jungle oats because we’re coming for you! oh and can anyone tell me how the handicap system works?

  16. illona Sep 18, 2013 at 9:59 am #

    Is it the normal camping fees? Or is there a set weekend cost?

    • Gustav Sep 18, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

      R60 pp per night.

      R50 pp once off cover charge for non-competitors (festival/party/Reel Rock Film etc. etc.).

    Meal logistics: Gustav for those of us not camping, and staying in town, approx when will breakfast and supper be served. Times?

    • Gustav Sep 18, 2013 at 11:20 pm #

      Read the program, it should all be there – http://www.climbing.co.za/boven-roc-rally-2013-registration/

      Please note: Breakfast and supper will only be served to climbers that have registered and paid to climb or “come for the jol”.

      No pre-registration, don’t expect to line up for food.

      The exception to this will be for Sunday – Chicken & pap will be prepared for breakfast, lunch & supper by an independent supplier, not by us. R45 for half chicken & pap. R10 for pap & sauce (I think!!!)

      • Byron Taylor Sep 19, 2013 at 7:53 am #

        Thanks Man. All boxes ticked, except computer savvy :-).

        • Gustav Sep 19, 2013 at 8:24 am #

          Too much information in there, we tend to skip over the important stuff.

  18. Gustav Sep 20, 2013 at 8:45 am #

    Please make sure that you bring your own plate, mug and cutlery to the Roc Rally – so that we use less stuff that will just be thrown away.

    And a pen or 2 for scoring!
