Bungonia Gorge Climbing. By David Cook

David climbing at Bungonia Gorge

I've done some good multi-pitch climbing on the south wall of Bungonia Gorge this year, squeezed in whenever possible and thought I'd share some pics. Layering using the Mont Reactor Tee, Grid Pro Hoodie and Guide Hoodie. The Guide was an absolute winner for long days on the wall where I was climbing in all conditions. Plenty of cool days, in the shade, in the sun, in the rain, in the wind - quite often all in the same day where you are routinely on the wall for 8+hrs at a time.

The climbing here at Bungonia is unique for Australia - its limestone and the multi-pitches offer 200-300m+ of quality mixed (bolts+trad) climbing. I know Andrew Bull (past Mont Industrial manager and local climber) has spent a lot of time here developing new routes. Hopefully, I can explore and develop something in the coming years too...

“I heard that the Mont Dragonfly had been released only days before what was likely to be the only backcountry campout of a particularly strange winter. I begged our Gear Editor Mattie to see what he could do and a few days later I was picking it up for a loan as we blitzed through Canberra. To the range!”

Fresh Snow, Mount Hotham. By Malin and Carol

Heading up Hotham we couldn’t believe two things. 1. We were allowed out to camp after having the Mont Dragonfly Tent during a month of corona lockdown restrictions and unable to try it. 2. That we made it up and over Hotham given how much snow there was... and low!
