The climbing on the Argadells station consists of numerous west-facing outcrops along the ridge top between Hanniman Gorge to the north and South Gorge to the south.
The ridge can be divided into the Wind Chill Wall area to the north, the Age of Consent area in the centre, and the unnamed big cliff area towards South Gorge. The climbs in the first two areas tend to be 10-15m on compact buttresses; the big cliff has 2-3 pitch adventures. The rock quality varies from reasonable to good.
Access is by car via Arden Vale Road. The station lies between Warren Gorge and Buckaringa and is now set up for tourists. It is popular with 4WDers, birdwatchers, walkers, artists, etc. There is an office near the homestead. When you reach the western side of Hanniman Gorge, look for a large water tank. Walking up the hill here is the usual approach to Wind Chill Wall. The Age of Consent area can be reached by continuing south from Wind Chill Wall or directly up the hill from the 4WD track that runs along the western side of the ridge line. Continue by foot or vehicle to reach the South Gorge area.
