The path to the Steeple is getting an overhaul. This is due to the build-up of sand under the entrance bridge to Montagu from past floods. Contractors are digging new canals and removing sand from the river area and under the bridge.
We have spoken to the operations manager who told us that the digging ‘should’ go a little way past The Steeple. We explained our vested interested of the rock climbing area on the corner (The Steeple) and he said that they would stack rocks near the base and dig further left of the crag (if possible) so as to avoid having the base of the Steeple washed away. They will also be making a rudimentary path from the parking area (by the palm trees) to the crag.
No ETA on when the job will be finished but its a welcome overhaul to the area. Sadly these machines will not be going into Bad Kloof 🙁
