Afrikaans 'bouldering'

Post by fransslabber » Sun Aug 10, 2014 9:34 pm


Was wondering if anyone has come across an Afrikaans term for bouldering?
I am writing some Afrikaans stuff about rockclimbing and made up my own word "rotsjakker" as in 'rondjakker' which means moving around.
Any ideas would be welcome.

Volgens Hiemastra se woordeboek is n boulder n "rotsblok" of n "rolblok". Kom ons klim maar net...
