Description

Napier range is a large limestone range, and numerous opportunities exist for climbing that are well away from popular tourist areas. However, given that much of the area is directly managed by traditional owners, permission should be obtained before climbing.

Access issues

Climbing anywhere in the gorge at Windjana is most certainly banned. It is one of the most sacred areas in the Kimberly, and should be left entirely alone by climbers, unless you are fortunate enough to have access be granted by traditional owners. Sure, Windjana is completely mind-blowing for climbers, but maybe it should stay that way.

11 ** Windjana Wandering Trad 25m

Head to Windjana Gorge, Good camp site, toilets and showers. Freshwater crocs in water in gorge. Walk through the tunnel and follow the walking track sign posts. It heads down to the sandy river bed and then back up and not long after that, there is a rock that juts out right on the track. There is a tree on the RHS and a corner climb LHS. Start RHS step across and up obvious route. LHS starts easy and then up on top of big flake and then two options, up to the left with over hang or across to the right and up the previous. Lead climb only, lots of 1/2 finger holds and flakes are good. Small pro does the job, Lots of other good climbs but very public area and you need to avoid the public where possible. Good shade and take water. Some gardening may be required along the route. Watch out for the small sharp rocks which are typical of this Devonian black face Limestone area.

Tempting as it sounds, please don't try to find, or go anywhere near this 'climb', it is completely off limits.
