My vision for the Origin Mountain festival was to bring climbers of all levels from around the country and celebrate the sport of climbing in every way we could.

Southern Rock is excited to confirm that the UIAA (International Union of Alpine Associations) will be sponsoring the Origin Mountain Festival.
Usually it’s tough keeping the routes fresh for Rumble. Through our route setters’ best efforts we have always managed a little something diverse and interesting every comp.
The event will take place at Umgeni Valley as this venue boasts not only some of the best sport routes in KZN but also accommodates Trad climbers and boulderers.
The second Rumble will be held on the 26th March. This year we will once again have 6 Rumbles – that means one awesome competition to look forward to every 2 months.
A new year and a new series of Rumbles are on their way. So get those guns firing and ready
The 6th Rumble is on it’s way and because it is the final one Southern Rock is going to bump up the festivities a few notches.
It’s not often you see The White Queen and Alice jumaring up a rope or see a playing card delicately balancing his way, trying to climb up a moving wall without using his hands.
The 4th Rumble of 2014 was the best to date. This round saw the gym filled with a record number of competitors, testing out the routes which had a funky mix of styles.
In celebration of another fantastic year, Southern Rock Climbing Centre will be holding it’s birthday event on 7th August.
