South African Highline Meeting 2017

The 4th edition of the South African Highline Meeting will be hosted at De Pakhuys in Rocklands over the Easter weekend, 14-17 April 2017.

Several Highlines ranging from 20-65m long will be rigged and ready to walk. This year there’ll be some new lines up and also a space-net above the campsite. A training line for highlining techniques will help first timers learn the basics. Shorter slacklines will be up at camp too. We’ll also have a bunch of Waterlines over the dams for some fun in the sun!
Other activities include Climbing, Swimming, Hiking, Unicycling, Juggling, Tricklining, Rodeolining, Music etc…

De Pakhuys is about 250km from Cape Town, 26km past Clanwilliam which is the closest town.
Take N7 (towards Malmesbury) until Clanwilliam turnoff on the right (just after Clanwilliam Dam). Then carry on past Clanwilliam and over the Pakhuis Pass. De Pakhuys/Alpha Excelsior turnoff is on the right a few hundred meters after the pass.
If anyone traveling by car has free space please post it here so that those looking for a lift may organise it with you.
