Bandito Wall

  • Grades: AU
  • Approach time: 5 minutes
  • Ascents: 84


This little crag sits just above a creek. The rock quality is excellent with some great routes at all grades. Probably the most accessible crag in Canberra. It became apparent to Chris Warner who developed most of the climbs after the 2003 bushfires cleared the landscape. Shady in the morning in summer, and most of the day in winter.


Look for a small gated fire trail on the right at the end of the left sweeping curve, a few hundred metres before the turnoff to Woods Reserve - keep an eye out for the creek gully and its passage under the road. Park by the side of the road at coordinates [-35.47778, 148.94627] - WGS84/google maps. Walk down the fire trail for 50m. Leave the firetrail on the other side of the creek, and follow a foot pad on the northern side of the creek for 5 minutes.

The slabby corner at the left hand end of the crag. A good beginner's lead.

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

Start a couple of metres right of 'Spaghetti O's'. Hard moves off the ground following seam then crack. Continue past 2 bolts to lower offs.

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

The crack just right of 'Blood for a Silver Dollar'. Step left at the top to use the same anchors.Take some smaller cams. No excuse if it's wet...

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

Popular slab. Start 2m right of 'Django the Bastard' below an undercling flake.

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

Steep slab right of 'Death Rides Alone'. Shares the same anchor.

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

The steep slab right of Machine Gun Killers, with a shared start.

FA: Jamie Valdivia, 28 Oct 2014

Will be a direct start to FAFDM. Steep wall then mantle on micro crimps. Open project.

Start at the right end of the cliff as for 'Dollars for a Fast Gun', but at the third bolt head left and follow the shallow groove.

FA: Chris Warner, 2004

The very right hand line and the first you come to. Great balance move through onto the steep slab.
