CityROCK JHB is turning 5 this October and we traditionally celebrate through the biggest indoor climbing party – ROCKtober. This year the world had other plans for us and we have adapted and adjusted along with everything else in our lives and are taking ROCKtober to the literal rock.

Download our must do outdoor climbs check list (below) and tick off as many climbs as you can in the month of October. Post your photos, video, story on social media with the hashtag #cityrocktober to enter (makes sure you give our climbing photography blog post a read for some pointers). Prizes for the most enthusiastic climber, most completed checklist and best photo, video or story will be awarded at the end of the month. At the end of October, send your checklists to
