Hardcopy Guide to Montagu

Post by robinsonk » Mon Feb 27, 2012 11:39 pm

Hi From Australia,
We are planning to spend some time in Montagu climbing later this year. What is the easiest way to get a hardcopy guide for Montagu, should i be printing out the individual crag pages on the routes wiki or can it be bought\downloaded as a single book?
Thanks,
Kim

Western Cape Rock by Tony Lourens has RDs for Montagu. But you'd need to print some updates. Email City Rock and see if they have stock.

You can also get a copy from the DeBos Campsite in Montagu.
The Western Cape Crags guide book is out of date, but still a good guide for the area.

Check out the Montagu Topo's section. The Bold and Beautiful Crag (which is worth a visit) is not in the guide book.
Enjoy.

First time I went there I put a pdf together with extracts I found on the wiki here and other information. Given that I didn't have a book at that stage yet. The information is not my IP or brainwork to sell or distribute and credit goes to wiki, but I have done the legwork to put it in a printable version and am happy to send it to you with some comments and notices on updates.

Other than that, what Justin said. Go camp at De Bos, they are awesome people and will sort you out quickly, and there are usually other regulars camping there as well that will help you. PM me if you need more info.
