"This just in from the Clanwilliam Tourism Association
Good afternoon all,
The news you have all been waiting for Rocklands will be open during bouldering season!!!
I have just spoken to Patrick Lane from Cape Nature, he said they are
currently keeping Rocklands closed until they can walk through it to
see what the damage is, but because the area is fairly flat it will not
take long to recover (they might keep it closed for a month or so but as
mentioned above will be open when bouldering starts), a good rain/wind
will do it good, specially to wash away the soot/grime off the rocks.
We will however have to get the message out that people need to stay on
the paths and not cut across to Rocklands as they have done previous
years. If all obey the rules it will lead to a successful bouldering
season in Rocklands again in 2013.
A meeting is still scheduled with the owners of guesthouses around
Rocklands to discuss the dos and donts so we will keep you in the loop
If you do have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.
Have a great day,
Clanwilliam Tourism Association"Let's all behave as proper users of a sensitive ecosystem, and enjoy the bouldering as long as we are able!
