Rocklands Summer

The summer temps have not managed to keep everyone away from Rocklands and some good sends have happened. Visiting Pretoria local Illona Pelser sent "Under My Thumb" 7A after dislocating her pinky finger on the same problem the day before. Later that afternoon, Illona make short work of "Roof on Fire" 6C and a 2nd try ascent of "Manuereheim Roof" 6C+ after getting some good beta from Kate Fairfield, who also sent the problem moments after. Marijus Šmigelskis came frustratingly close to flashing "Arch Baby" 7C and climbed it easily on his next attempt. He also sent "Cabe Town" 7C, which is the sandy roof opposite "The Vice" at the Fortress.
