Montagu Rock Rally 2016 – Register now

Attention all climbers! The Montagu Rock Rally is springing back to life this year with youthful energy – So keep the weekend of the 30th April open!

This is an event for all climbers, softcore and hardcore alike. The aim is to have fun and encourage others who are trying their best, whatever their grades. If you like the competitive edge, your ego will be fueled too!

There will be great prizes – e.g. for the best dressed team (Yes, you can even wear spandex.) Have a good time, and get pumped doing so – come along and climb to your heart’s content. Bring your friends and meet new ones too.

We will be hosting a banquet dinner and party at De Bos on the Saturday night after the prize giving.
