We hope you’re ready to crush in the best pebble-wrestling playground around, because the 2023 Rocklands Rally is just over one month away!

Join us at the beautiful De Pakhuys farm in Cederberg from 7 to 9 July to climb your skin off, win some great prizes and party it up in paradise. Climbers of all skill and experience levels are welcome, and everyone will have a chance to score some goodies thanks to the Rally’s handicap score system (and a great big bunch of spot prizes waiting for some lucky winners).


The goal is to climb at least 10 boulders of the highest grade possible from 8:30am to 5:30pm on Saturday the 8th – you will log your 10 hardest climbs on an online scorecard which must be submitted by 6pm.

The rally has a handicap scoring system which adjusts each competitor’s score according to their personal climbing record (you don’t need to worry about any maths, you’ll just fill in your past sending stats on the scorecard).

You will also be able to collect bonus tokens by grabbing goodies at Traveller’s Rest and Alpha Excelsior (the Hen House), and by finding the CityROCK crew who will be hiding in the boulder fields.

Once the 6pm submission deadline has passed, the judges will calculate the scores and the winners will be announced! Prizes will be awarded to the top three competitors in each category, and plenty of spot prizes will be handed out.

Everything will be explained fully during the event briefing at 8am on Saturday, so don’t sweat the details!

As an extra bonus, De Pakhuys is offering a 25% discount on camping on 7 & 8 July for Rocklands Rally participants who book through MMO, so you can grab two nights for just R150pp!

PLUS you can grab Metolius boulder pads for 15% OFF in the CityROCK Gear Shops and on Mountain Mail Order with discount code RRboulder23 until 7 July 2023.

Head to Mountain Mail Order to sort out your tickets and camping, grab yourself a Rocklands Rally event shirt, and get all the juicy details – this is going to be a good one!

Note: 8 July has been set as a backup date for the rally if the weather doesn’t cooperate in June. Follow CityROCK Cape Town on Facebook & Instagram for weekly updates leading up to the event.
