A smaller crag with some good routes, the crag is less popular due to the awkward base. Hilti is the smaller crag to the left of Bosch Crag (further up the main kloof). The base can be a bit awkward and the belayer + bags will want to remain tied in.

Because of the Cold Shuts at the top of most of the old routes (you will notice the convenient way in which you can drop the rope through them) do not lower the climber at speed (this could heat up the metal and cause the Cold Shut to fail) and do not top rope off these anchors. These anchors are due to be replaced
