Bouldering the Coast of South Africa

Looking for a dry line at the edge of the earth

While camping along the wild coast of South Africa, I stumbled upon this boulder. After watching the storm surge against it for awhile, I spotted what looked like a somewhat dry climbing line—a series of salty knobs on the backside that looked worth a shot.

Setting up the camera on an interval timer, I wandered out to explore. Pulling up through the steepest section, I saw a giant wave crash against the rocks to my left.

This is all just a long way of saying: Selfie.
