Assuming you are driving into Montagu from the Ahston side, you can park at the entrance to Montagu on the left past the large bridge.  From there, walk across the river and through the reeds till you get onto the Cogmans Kloof trail path (same walk as if you were going to [[The Steeple]]). The ascent to the Bold & Beautiful crag is just past the walk up to the Alley.
