Description

During the Bambatha Uprising of 1906, the inhabitants of Greytown went into laager in the town hall. A column of police was sent to fetch civilians from the area of Keate's drift, but it was ambushed by rebels at this rock on 4th April. Four policemen were killed, resulting in a terrible revenge against the rebels at Pukunyoni, Isuze and Mome Gorge.
