Montagu Mountain Mania

Last weekend I went on a road trip to join the famous Cogman’s Rock Rally as part of the Mountain Mania Festival in Montagu, about 250km east of CT. It’s a full day rock climbing competition where you, together with your buddy try to conquer as many single pitch sport routes as possible. Dependend on the difficulty (grade) of the climbs the teams receive points for their scorecards, collecting bonus points for flash & onsight ascents. The only two things I rememba is, that I almost got killed by a rockfall while belaying and… that I shouldn’t have brought the “Stürzer“…
