The Visual # 6

Unknown Problem, Fields of Joy, Alpha-Farms, Rocklands
photos: Keith Ladzinski

There is such perfect bullet sandstone all over South Africa. The Rocklands is only one of very many new areas in this vast and rocky country being developed. The underside of this boulder had a perfect crimp rail out of the roof for 20 feet that led into another 15 feet of hard face climbing, an undoubtable pure line. This roof is unmarked but for the holds you must use. I never finished the problem because I couldn't keep my heel on for the extended move in these photos. (click photos to enlarge) One of the many that got away.
