This was one of the first routes I ever saw when I arrived in Waterval Boven for the first time in 2006. My eyes grew large and my secret desire to climb it slow grew larger.
The festival had about 1500 participants, creating the largest party I have ever seen after any Rally. There were kayakers sliding down the stretch tent roof, rider sliding down a long line of couches and pole climbers/dancers doing their thing.
It’s Boven Roc Rally time again!!!

Instead of taking more rest days or doing something silly like yoga, I decided to acquire some items that I though my body would appreciate. These included an ergonomic chair, an orthopaedic pillow and a backpack that fits well.
Boven is a bit like Paris. The first local you meet speaks French. The difference is that this person is super friendly and welcoming. If you are confused, then you probably haven’t been to Boven (yet).
A climbing gym has been long awaited in Durban. We now have a great climbing and social facility that is child friendly and open seven days a week.
The weekend I opened the climb I was actually suffering from Golfer’s Elbow in my left arm. It had been a problem for the previous three weeks and I have taken the entire week off to let it rest (for me 5 rest days is psychotic).

We chose as our goal one of Bob’s secret unclimbed walls which we’ve been calling the Polar Molar for it’s tooth-like appearance and pearly-white enamel surface.
After heavy rainfall last night and this morning, Montagu is flooded in with incoming roads from the N1, N2 and pass to Ashton being closed. Rain is still falling in Montagu.
The outdoors is getting greater. More people going outdoors, that translates to more customers and more stuff to buy and sell. Business is good.
