I went to the Rooiels site on Saturday morning first thing when the mountain was still in shadow. It was windy as heck. Didn't see or hear the rockjumpers. Did see a far off shape of two Ground Woodpeckers on a rock and also a Cape Rock Thrush. So I went off to see the penguins at Stoney Point and the Harold Porter botanical garden and then returned later around midday for another try. Still nothing. I bumped into more people looking for these guys, but without any luck. I will try again soon.
