Emanuel Moosburger of Innsbruck, Austria recently amassed an impressive ticklist during a seven-week trip to the sandstone bouldering mecca, Rocklands in South Africa.

Highlights from his trip were about 30 problems V10 and harder including: 11 V11s, 6 V12s, 5 V13s and a V14 repeat (at night by headlamp) of Fred Nicole’s Mooiste Maise that was believed to be unclimbable after a crucial hold had broken. One of Moosburger’s most prized days from the trip consisted of sending Royksopp (V11), Armed Response (V13) and The Vice (V13).

In an email the über-psyched Moosburger said, “All I can say is that it’s been the most amazing trip I’ve ever been on! The climbing and scenery there is simply amazing, unique and I was able to tick off a list of problems that I never dreamed would come true. Many thanks to my sponsors Moon, 5.10 and chalkjunkie.at who made this trip possible.”
