Mark Katz Rocklands report: Desperado 8A ~ 8B flash

The British boulderer Mark Katz has recently came back from his honeymoon in South Africa.

Mark took the chance to spend two and a half weeks in Rocklands, which is about three hours north of Cape Town in the Cedarburg mountains.

Needless to say, Rocklands is the South African bouldering Mecca!

In his report published on the Moonclimbing.com blog, Mark tells that he has flashed Klem Loskot problem Desperado (originally 8B), in the Fortress area.

As Mark states:
"I got excited and felt rather pleased about this- but after a bit of research it seems consensus varies from 8a, 8a+, 8b. Grades eh! I'm not sure, it suited me- bunched, sitting on my feet and grabbing a poor pinch. Nice bloc though!".

Good effort Mark!
