After warming up by repeating New Base Line, ~8B+,and Ill Trill, ~8B+/C, at Magic Wood/Averstal, Switzerland, Gabri Moroni headed south to Rocklands, South Africa. He kept his good form.

Day one, feeling ...a little bit tired and shaky... after a long journey, he managed to flash The Rhino, ~7B+, Caroline, ~7C+, and Oral office, ~8A+.

Day two, now feeling a little bit better, he flashed Tea with Elmarie, ~8A+, and repeated Mooiste Maise, ~8B.

A couple of days later, now up to speed, he flashed Armed response and Power of one, both ~8B.
The latter was also flashed by Jimmy Webb.
