About a three-hour drive north of Cape Town, South Africa, there is an area called Cederberg Mountain which is known mostly for its production of Rooibos tea. But over the last ten years, it has also gained attention for another economy-boosting activity - rock climbing. As Emilie Iob reports for VOA, it is now considered one of the world's 10 top destinations for the bouldering form of rock climbing - and is attracting climbers from around the world.
