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...
Routes climbed this year, some of which are pictured:
Air Malta (25) 240m
Jumpmaster (25) 200m
Bridge to Total Freedom (25/26) 190m
Siblings of the Sun (26) 260m
Evolution (24) 220m
Iron Curtain + Asteroids (26) 300m+
Other gear in use includes Slinx (partner is wearing), Prana pants, La Sportiva shoes, Grivel and DMM quickdraws, Sterling & Edelrid ropes. All quality!!
