Bolting in Greyton - permissions and viability

Post by Chev » Fri Sep 29, 2017 1:51 pm

Hi guys and gals

Anybody know how to get permission to bolt in Greyton, in the Overberg, or who should be contacted?
In addition, has anybody ever had a close up look at the rock there and know anything about whether it is a worth while area to pursue?

Thanks!

The first question to ask is whose land is the rock on....

What area in Greyton? I would assume that the area you are thinking of belongs to the municipality.

Would you be interested in giving coordinates?

Hi Justin
It is along the Greyton Mcgregor trail so yes it would be municipal land.

Cool. So, keep in mind that the Langeberg Municipality (Montagu, Greyton and other towns) are happy for people to bolt.
Some of the conditions are:
- They want a record of where new routes/crags are being established.
- They want only the 'correct' fixed equipment to be installed in the Montagu Mountain Reserve.

Mail/call if you want to chat.
Cheers,
Justin
