The Bold & Beautiful Crag Topo

Bold & Beautiful crag in Cogmans Kloof Montagu

Bold and Beautiful has 13 routes with grades ranging from 14 to 23.  The routes in the middle of the crag (e.g. Snot & Trana) are 30 meters long – so bring a 60 meter rope.  In the summer, the crag stays in the shade till about noon.  In the winter, it stays in the shade all day.
