Montagu is the most developed sport climbing area in the Western Cape (if not the country). 100’s of sport routes of all ranges of difficulty. +/-400 Single Pitch & a good few Multi-Pitch Sport Routes.
Montagu offers some of the best climbing in the Western Cape with many crags that vary in grade and steepness with excellent quality rock. Two hours drive from Cape Town, it rarely rains in Montagu and when Cape Town has bad weather, Montagu normally has perfect conditions for climbing (Except for the occasional freak floods). The small town of Montagu is situated in the Klein Karoo (semi desert region). Once a sleepy little Karoo town where not much happened, the town has since transformed into a vibrant energetic holiday destination. It is now well known for climbing and mountain biking (among things).
