There is a point in many climbers lives where the psyche is just not where it should be… 2015 has been a very quiet year in terms of climbing for me, what with studying for Matric finals and it’s endless demand for time.
Which is why I was so keen to hit up Rocklands with good friends to awaken the psyche from it’s slumber.
I had a few doubts as to what my performance would be like because I have not been training much at all, but psyched friends and the stunning landscape drove me not to care about sending rather instead just appreciate the beauty and prestige of Rocklands which we live so close and often take for granted.
The first day we walked to “8 days rain” area to check out a few problems I’ve always been keen to see. Unfortunately the battery was dead on my camera so couldn’t document anything.
Jahne Theron and I got psyched on missioning around the area and found ourselves attempting the heinous Yosemite Slab boulder in the sun!! Not the best of ideas… After that we headed down to Vanity – 7a+, I got super psyched on the beauty of the problem and managed to send second go, btw I recommend this problem a million times, absolutely fantastic!
That was all I sent on the trip, got really close on a few project which will definitely go down on the next trip. Psyche is through the roof!!
