Having the best time in Rocklands!! This place is just incredible, so many awesome lines, perfect rock, amazing movements, great weather, nice people and stunning views ✨ Since it's my first time here I'm very busy sending as many classics as I can I've been doing really well, feeling very strong and adapting well to the style. Yesterday we did a super fun dyno tour where 'Black Velvet' [8a] can't be missing by @pumkin_honey My favorite boulder so far is 'Airstar' [8b], definitely one of the best boulders on the planet for me! Opened by @kilifish • Thanks to the crew for the best vibes @pumkin_honey @alfons_dornauer @michael.piccolruaz @alexkhazanov and the sensei himself @gabrimoroni • #rocklands #dyno #thisplacerocks #bouldering #iloveit #rockclimbing
