While I was in Rocklands Kevin and Nalle found a monsterous arete. The is one of the single most impressive lines i have ever seen. It was dubbed Project Real Big. It is a stand start on perfect rock and it climbs a stunning arete that I would estimate to be around 24ft. It is HUGE. It is about an hour hike from the road, in a side valley west of the Kleinfontein Area, home of the Hatchling and Sky. I just found out that Nalle, after 12 days of work, climbed this amazing arete and has called it Livin’ Large 8C. Sick! I am totally impressed with Nalle’s commitment to bushwhack out there 12 days to climb this imposing line. Here are some pics I took from the day we went out there. The arete is so big I couldn’t fit the whole thing in the frame.
