Hi Justin.
I'm heading to Rocklands next month and have armed myself with your Bastille topo.
One question: Can you, or anyone tell me where in Rocklands the Bastille crag is?
Thanks a mil
Iain

Have you been to Rocklands before? Do you know how to get to the Fortress? Bastille is just to the right of the Fortress if you look at it from the car park.

Basically you walk along the path & (before the wild west wall) you will see a cairn to go right. You walk up to that path all the way up. Takes about 30-40mins.

See WCC (p190) for a map (it doesn’t show the actual path that I mentioned above)

Also be sure to check out Adultword - Adultworld RD
It’s a really stunning crag, just past (behind the Bastille) see image below.

Thanks Justin :D
I haven't been to Rocklands since spending one day there in 1994 (after 12 days on the Tafelberg).
Is it possible to traverse from the Bastile / adult world area straight to the Fortress? I want to look at Duck L' Orange as well.
Regards
Iain

That could end up being quite a walk.

(You could, however, just walk straight to Duck a L'Orange, as the Bastille is right in the middle of the Fortress boulders)
