Rocklands Highline Meeting – 25-28 March

The 2016  Rocklands Highline Meeting will be held in memory of Sylvain Burki.

It’s the 3rd edition of the South African Highline Meeting, hosted at De Pakhuys in Rocklands over the Easter weekend, 25-28 March 2016.

Several highlines ranging from 20-65m long will be rigged and ready to walk.  A training line for highlining will also be up for first timers to learn the basics.  Shorter slacklines will be up at camp too.  We’ll also have a bunch of waterlines over the dams for some fun in the sun!
Other activities will include Climbing, Swimming, Hiking, Unicycling, Juggling, Tricklining, Rodeolining, Music etc…
