How to get there • Park
Follow the road out of Montagu towards Barrydale (R62) for about 7 km, until you reach the entrance
to the Guano Cave Resort on you right. Drive iup and go through the main gate, where you will pay an
entrance fee and sign an indemnity form.
From here follow the cement road which veers to the left past the office block and continues to the
T-junction where you turn right. Follow the road, keeping right at the stone circle, then left at the next
fork and carry on straight, past a bank of solar panels on your left. Continue straight, past a small
“private property” sign, until you get to a confluence of four roads. Go straight over and continue on to
reach a gate. Go thruogh the gate and carry on to another gate.
PLEASE KEEP THE SECOND GATE CLOSED AT ALL TIMES
Once through the second gate, continue along a stony road (good for all cars) for a few 100 metres,
to reach a very impressive car park, which can park over 20 cars. Made specially for climbers, by the
owners! At the top end of the car park you will find a cairn marking the start of the path.
Approach (20 mins flatish)
Follow the substantial path around the hill and continue up gentle slopes to reach the small river bed.
Continue along, then go up to the left to the sport crags. Crime of the Century, the 4-pitch tad route is
on the huge Supertramp Buttress on the right of the kloof.
