The ‘Bungles contain some of the most remote and adventurous climbing on the mainland of Australia. Huge volcanic outcrops, situated well above the tree-line, make for stunning trad lines and jaw dropping exposure. With little in the way of guidebooks and ambiguous information online the route finding can be as challenging as topping out on a huge volcanic spire is rewarding. The climbing and location need to be experienced to be believed!
This excerpt from the 1984 Wolgan Guide says it all really: “To all you heathens who frequent Piddington and York, here is your redemption. Turn from your evil ways, repent and be Wolganised.”
Some of the finest lines in the mountains lie within this humble valley, they steeped in history and stories abound linking the climbing in the Wolgan to each ground breaking epoch in Australian climbing.
The longer than usual walk-ins are a small price to pay to experience some of the loveliest climbing the mountains have to offer, to be surrounded by as much rock as the mind can absorb, and to retire to camp by your car with easy access to the river.
