Happy Client’s Feedback

We stayed 2 nights in a double room, room was clean and safe, kitchen was well equipped, nice terrace. Alex was very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. She arranged a drop off at the Waterval crag, climbing was great!

We signed up for a Half day guided Climb with Roc 'n Rope Adventures and had an amazing time. Our guide Brandon was an experienced climber and a steady hand for the two us, who had barely done any climbing before. The equipment that was provided by our guide was of a high quality and well maintained.

The highlight of our trip was climbing at the falls when Alex and her son, Mel, abseiled down to join us. It was an honor to be around two people that have made Waterboven a climbing destination!
