Rocklands 2022

Bouldering on Orange Sandstone in South Africa

This year, Robert and Leon spent a few weeks in South Africa, seeking for high quality bouldering in the Cederberg Mountains. Rocklands is one of the largest and most beautiful bouldering areas in the world. The red sandstone holds ultimate grip and has naturally beautiful formations. The climbing style is very athletic on big holds and small ledges, which is why even indoor climbers can pull off grades well.

We spent our time at probably the best place in the area, the de Pakhuys campsite. Many people sleep simply in their tents, but there are also cabins and larger houses for rent. In the morning you meet like-minded people having breakfast in the sun and in the evening you sit together with many climbers at the campfire and talk about the exhausting day in the rocks.

Fontainebleau 2019

Watch two parts of bouldering in Fontainebleau.

Fontainebleau is always a great travel desitnation. Whether you are a complete beginner or a full professional, there is something for everyone in this forest. Most of the boulders feature mostly slopers and hard mantles, but every style can be found here (highballs, dynos, etc.).

Unfortunately, you can’t travel to Fontainebleau at the moment due to Covid-19 restrictions. We hope that these two videos will give you some training inspiration for the times when it’s time to get going again!

Watch Part 1

Some pretty cool highballs and sloper boulders from our Fontainbleau trip 2019.

Watch Part 2

Classics and uncharted lines from the 2019 Fontainebleau trip.

Here are some more uncharted lines in Fontainebleau. And if you can’t get enogh bouldering videos check YouTube channel.

Dyno compilation

We have put together some impressive dynos from the bouldering world.

A ‘dyno’ is defined as a dynamic movement that uses momentum to get to the next hold.

This compilation shows you a lot of different jumps, mainly from Fontainebleau, but also from Frankenjura, Magic Wood, Zillertal and even Morocco.
We hope you enjoy the video on YouTube:

One of the best jumps from this video was ‘Rainbow Rocket’. We have published more insights on this unique boulder here.

Frankenjura Beta Videos

A collection of all our boulders recorded on tape.

This site will provide the full collection of our Frankenjura beta videos. We are keen on keeping all links to the boulders updated.

A very impressive dyno in Fontainebleau

The hardest dyno I’ve ever done

It is now exactly 4 years ago that I flew up the dyno classic ‘Rainbow Rocket‘ graded 8A/V11.

In my opinion this block still offers one of the most impressive lines worldwide. I have always loved jumps and dynamic moves. Especially this boulder in Fontainebleau was a dream of mine. All in all it cost me about 220 attempts spread over 3 trips to conquer it. The hardest part was to train the complex movement of placing the foot at hand height during the movement to generate the necessary upward thrust.
In more detail you can watch our edited video of the process and instructions on Youtube:

While we have presented our best Instagram posts here, the YT video is by far our most popular with over 50000 clicks.

If jumping is not for you, have a look at the boulders in our other videos, e.g. some uncharted lines in Fontainebleau.
