'The Farm' climbing area in Montagu is for sale. This is the farm where Hermie has been opening routes and was part of this years Montagu Rock Rally.

I'm not a man of means but I truly hope a climber or a group of climbers buys that farm. Hopefully the climbers will outnumber the grouches in Montagu soon and we can have Bosch kloof back. I for one miss it even though I live in Joburg and haven't even touched Montagu rock since 2010.

Tough one this, its a fair piece of mountain (consisting mainly of Fynbos). One would need to see how much climbing there actually is on the land. There are no structures on the property and an ablution block still needs to be built.

First place for us as mountain users would be a servitude to the mountain.

We all miss Bosch Kloof (believe me!). We (MCSA + Montagu locals) are going in for another round with the land owners. We'll inform everyone when we have an outcome (don't anyone start holding their breath just yet).

I wish! Looks awesome!

Is it currently open for climbing? This weekend specifically?

Was there this weekend. The farmer is really nice and there are some awesome routes. One note though, Coffee B 4 Jam is SOOOOO not a 17. :lol: and it has also been bolted. On Sunday, while we were there, another route was bolted as well, on the face next to the Arete on 4. So make sure you get an updated topo from Jaco. I will scan the one we got and post as an update to the one here tomorrow. R10 per person entry.

Be patient when trying to get hold of Jaco, really nice guy, but bad reception up there.
