This month saw the opening of another fine multi-pitch route on Cogmans Buttress – “Cresta del Amici” – which in Italian means “The Friends Ridge”.  An excellent route created by Tony Lourens and Garvin Jacobs.

This is a spectacular grade 16 , 9 pitch, 225 meter route on the far left of Cogmans Buttress.  It weaves it’s way up to the very top of the buttress, complete with a summit book to record your ascent!

July can traditionally be one of the wettest months in the Western Cape, but even if it’s raining in Cape Town, the weather is often dry and sunny in Montagu, so . . . . . . make a plan, come and enjoy the rock in Montagu!
