The Bastard is in the area called Bad Kloof in the town of Montagu. The walk in is 1 min and the crag gets morning shade. There are 2 bolted climbing routes SA grades 18-21.


This is the 1st bit of climbable rock on the right hand side of the the Kloof when walking in from the Old Mill side. Walk up from the right side for less than a minute (on the right side of the weir). This crag gets morning shade. There is a wasp nest on the climb, so really don't bother to climb here.

Climb ZA Ed’s note: I’ve named this the Bastard crag, otherwise I’d need to call this the Shit Crag :-)
