Description

Some of the best highballs you will ever see. The awe inspiring lines ascend the tall faces of this boulder are one of the reasons Rocklands has become such a popular international destination. While the lines are tall the landings are for the most part clean and flat meaning that with enough pads and good spotters they can be tackled with a higher than normal sense of security. The problems run a good range of difficulty from Font 6b (one Font 4 crack) to Font 7c+ (with a couple of grade 8 link up and direct lines) meaning there are opportunities to find challenges for most everyone who is interested.

The problems themselves tend to be slightly overhanging, with harder moves off of thin edges and most of them at one point or another pass at least one large horizontal.

Getting There

The approach trail ends in an open area with the classic Shosholoza slightly to the right. Ongo is a large boulder to the left of the open area. GPS is on the parking area.
