Stoked at Home: Lisa Rands on Boulders in Rocklands

Watch the top American boulderer take down hard problems in South Africa

Over 10 years ago, Lisa Rands had an epic season down in Rocklands, South Africa. This clip goes behind the scenes of Specimen, the film that was produced about the trip.

Lisa joined in the exploration of new areas at Rocklands, South Africa, establishing some fine new boulder problems in this emerging area including the exceptional sit-start Pinotage V10 among others, and made the first female ascent of numerous hard lines in the area such as Nutsa V11/12.

She has continued her exploration of Alpine terrain, teaming up with Canadian climbing legend Peter Croft in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to establish first ascents in the backcountry.
