Afrikaans 'bouldering'

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

Hi

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.

Thanks
Frans

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