Getting There

Drive out of Montagu into Cogman's Kloof passing the big contorted Cogman's Buttress on your left. Eagle's Folly Buttress appears next, higher up the mountainside. Park and find your way into the stream bed coming down from the buttress. Rock hop your way up and when the stream bed starts getting steep, move out right and zigzag your way up on the right. At the top (you can see over the ridge into Keur Kloof from here) move across left to the base of the buttress.
