Summary

This is a very enjoyable crag with some great climbs. Lots of room for further development.

Access issues

Email the owners at thefarmroute62@gmail.com for access.

Drive towards Barrydale from Montagu and keep an eye out for Guano Caves on the right, then travel another 1.4km. A gate with a sign reading "The Farm on R62" will be on your right (-33.829765, 20.193099). After the gate turn left and follow the path up towards a gate with a combination lock, which is the entrance to the accommodation. Continue up the path until you reach a small parking lot next to a cement dam (-33.834874, 20.185834).

Approach

The approach is an easy 15 minute hike to the first set of crags (The Farm Crag, Black Slab Sector and Graduation Wall). The other crags require some more walking and at times even a bit of scrambling (there are ropes to help with tough sections).

Where to stay

The farm appears to have its own accommodation available to climbers. Otherwise De Bos is a good choice.

Ethic inherited from Montagu

To avoid any further Altercations with land owners and incorrect equipment being used, the Montagu Mountain Committee (who are responsible for the Montagu Reserve) have asked for applications to be submitted before a new route is bolted.
