Bosch Crag is one of Montagu's most popular crags due to the short walk-in, easier routes and quality of the climbing.

One of the first developed crags in Montagu during the early 1990's boasting routes with just 4 bolts to the chains (these routes now have double the amount of bolts!). As with many of the crags in Bosch Kloof, Bosch boasts excellent routes on superb rock.

The landowner gets his household drinking water from this kloof, so it is imperative (very important!) that all rules are followed otherwise we risk losing this kloof again (there was a case of water contamination and <a title="Bosch Kloof Closed" href="" target="_blank">the kloof was closed for 3 years!</a>)
