Summary

A cluster of sandstone boulders and caves on the East side of the Mt York Camping area.

Description

gage wolf cave is the first cave you walk past on the right as you walk down the gully, a bunch of harder problems with some historical problems. chilli boulder is the next boulder you come to walking east, with the front side very obvious there is problems all the way around this boulder.

Access issues inherited from Mount York

Various gullies may be closed for remediation work at various times. I.e. Echo gully was closed in Autumn 2016.

Approach

Walk down from the camping area to the toilet block and past the old climbers hut following the track and few stairs into the gully with ferns. Down into one arena with rock, the track veers right and splits. At the fork, right will take you to Wolf Cave, left will take you to the chilli boulder

Ethic inherited from Mount York

Many and varied, please try to respect them all!

Retro-bolting has occurred several times over the years and is generally condemned and dealt with swiftly.

Grade Route

Just before entering the Wolf Cave, sit down start from sloper then follow the obvious line of jugs to a small slot in the break, out left. We didnt use the pocket because it was full of spiders.

as for Wolves at the Gate but eliminate the blocky jug above the middle rail slopers of the original and crank left to obvious good hold as per WATG - might be V0+
