    The interesting thing in Rocklands, is that there is no need to look super hard to find dedicated climbers, they're everywhere. After all, they travel from all around the world to confront themselves to some of the most amazing south african boulder problems; they are meant to be skilled. Here is Adrien Venturino, a french climber I met through the scottish guy "with the grey shirt"... We went on what was only supposed to be a day mission in the Riverside sector allongside with a whole team of rock lovers from Switzerland, France and Scottland; but ended up in a long and brave after dusk battle against the infamous White Mazda Clan's roof graded 7c+. As the sun was setting down, the team decided to head back to the campsite, leaving Adrien together with Robin, alone with their own battle. They kept fighting, toe hooks after heel hooks, until the point muscles couldn't follow anymore. This, was a full commitement day... well done guys !
