Ha ha its a debate that's been raging on add nauseum, it IS actually much safer with both facing the same way, the bolt biner can actually unclip itself (in two different ways) with the gate facing up!!

Anyhoo - stoked folks are heading back into Bosch

Is this kloof still closed to climbers? I heard something about a permit system costing R30 pp/ day. Justin, what's the story?

it can conveniently be done online here:

Hi All,

This is a reminder:
When entering Boschkloof, please always get a permit in advance - https://montaguclimbing.com/boschkloof/ ... ay-permit/
No bolting of new routes.
Take zip loc bags to carry your excrement and toilet paper out.
Stay away from the water.

The reason for this reminder is because (some) climbers have not been doing this.

Please know that we are currently in talks with the owners about continued access.
Please also know that if we lose Bosch Kloof, Legoland goes as well.

Thanks to everyone for following the rules. :thumleft:

I saw quite a few new people at De Bos this weekend. I don't think they visit Climb ZA. Maybe a bigger sign at the gate?

unless you have the ancient route guide everything else states clearly there's a permit system in place. we really have to stick to the rules here; losing that kloof again will be a disaster

Any chance Riki could simplify the online permit application page? Seems you have to give out a wee bit too much personal info for something as mundane as a climbing permit. Note that only banks and police have the authority to demand ID numbers - anybody else is actually in breach of privacy law
