Indeed Alex Honnold will be around to join us for the Roc Rally weekend. Pretty cool eh?

He features in the Rock Reel Tour movie that will be shown on the Sunday night during the rally.

What about "No Strings Attached"?
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...

Does the handicap system allow for extra points when not using a rope? :jocolor:

Are you guys being serious? That's really cool - would have been great to be up in that part of the world to check it out!

Anyone know where else he is heading while he's here? If he's doing some climbing in KZN it would be great to go and watch him climb.

Just an update:

Alex Honnold is on his way to the Boven Rock Rally from Spitzkoppe, where he was climbing with Alard and Clinton.
On Saturday Alex will be climbing at the Rally with Mr Boven himself, Andrew Pedley. After the comp, during the scoring, Alex will give a presentation.
Apparently Alex's handicap is 31, if Clintons' math is to be trusted.

On Sunday evening, we will be showing the 2014 Reel Rock Tour.
Hazel Findlay, who stars prominently in this years' RRT, will be arriving in Boven at 9 pm. Straight off a flight from Boulder, Colorado, where she was at the worldwide RRT premiere. Maybe there will be a chance for some Qs and As, time permitting.

So don't miss this years' Boven Rock Rally. or come on Sunday for a day of climbing and a great film evening.

- Robert
