"Nothing in this world can prepare you for what you will see coming over the hill revealing Rocklands in South Africa. Thousands, upon thousands of sandstone boulders. Itís sickening to look at all that rock. Your eyes just never find a moment to stop and focus. Itís honestly overwhelming to realize there is absolutely no possible way to even touch every boulder, let alone climb all of them. But climb we did."

A remarkable trip report with beautiful climb, landscape, and animal photographs. I welcome you to read it!

Beautiful pictures in your TR. What stood out the most in your quote above is that's how I felt when I came around the bend in Yosemite under El Capitan! Nothing can prepare a climber for that awe inspiring moment. If you loved South Africa, Hampi would probably appeal to you as well. It has the same endless feel, but granite as opposed to sandstone.
