Hi guys,

I am looking at being in Rocklands around those dates roughly. I am looking for a lift and partner and am obviously prepared to contribute towards fuel.

I am a professional photographer and will have a high quality camera on me, so you also be getting some top shots of yourself climbing, which a trust would be a good enough incentive to have me tagging along with you.

I am open to both sports climbing and bouldering. Before you tell me, yes I know it gets hot there in summer, but I'm ok with that...I am from Durban...

I obviously have all my own camping gear.

Shot!

Hey

Me and my girlfriend are going to Rocklands for sure in the next two months. But we leave the 4th of December. So if you're up for a trip earlier on the season let us know. We're staying in Cape town.

Cool.

The earliest I can make it is Sunday the 16th, as I will only be landing in the western cape on the 12th Dec.

Hey man!!
I'm SO glad to have seen this post! It looks like our trips almost EXACTLY overlap with each other so I would love to share a rental car with you while going to the rocklands :)
I'm flying into Cape Town (from Johannesburg) on December 12, 2012 and I depart on the evening of Dec 23, 2012.
I reserved a small rental car and staying at a local campground beside the rocklands, De Pakhuys.

Let me know if you're interested in travelling/bouldering together.
I'm into climbing photography as well so it'll be good times.
check out my photo from Red Rock Canyon in Nevada!

Jeff (travelling from Canada)

Hi guys,
planning to be there as well around that time and looking for partner. Coming from the namibian direction though.
Would be cool to do some climbing together.

Hi Jeff and Jorg,

Sorry about the delay. I only saw your messages now. Yes, I am still very keen. I just need to confirm when I will be leaving, but for now, count me in!:)

I don't have a crash pad, but I might be able to organise that if neither of you guys have one?

Looking forwards to it!

Hey guys!

Super psyched about this trip- should be great times!
I don't have a crash pad but I was planning on renting one from a climbing gym/shop in Cape Town.
The more crash pads, the better! :)

As I mentioned earlier, I already booked a campsite at De Pakhuys campground which is situated directly within the Rocklands area- would you guys want to also camp at the same place? It will probably make it easier when we go out bouldering during the days and when we take rest days...

Jorg- when are you planning on being in the Rocklands?

Jeff

I'm new to climbing but will be on holiday over that time. Thinking of doing a road trip and some camping, so maybe I could pull in there join.

Hi Golan,

I'm out, but I think the other guys are still hitting it.

Enjoy

Hey Golan,

I'm driving to the Rocklands right now and I'll be returning to Cape Town on Thursday to party with a friend before he flys back to Canada.
I'll be dropping him off at the airport on Saturday morning and drive back to the Rocklands directly after, staying there until the afternoon of Friday Dec 21.

Let me know if you want to hitch a ride with me on Saturday morning.
We can split for petrol :)

Jeff
