Single-pitch sport climbs, close to the car-park. A few good routes and easier access than most, although a little tricky to find the first time.


Access issues inherited from Bungonia Gorge

The park is occasionally closed for feral animal control. Check here:


Park at Bungonia Lookdown carpark. Walk towards the lookout and hop over the fence to the left just before you get to it. Follow the rim of the gorge for 50m to a spur or headland. (If you walk out on the headland you can look back to the lookout). From the headland head diagonally downhill and left (looking out) until you see a 15m high buttress. The buttress has a cave that goes all the way through and out the other side. The first three routes are left, right and through the cave. For 'top wall' routes, crawl through the cave and follow the contour right for around 50m.

For Reflux Crag proper, skirt under the buttress (past a 5m high sport project on a mini-arete) and follow the contour right from here.

Grade Route

The next 4 routes are on the faces directly above the cave.

Left line on slabby arete. make sure to stick clip the 1st hanger. Single carabiner lower off.

A slabby arete, left of the through-the-cliff cave. The grade is a bit of a guess. Approx location -34.79761, 150.01740

Juggy left-trending line of holds, starting just right of the through-the-cliff cave on its eastern side.

Starting on the western side of the walk-through cave, starting just to its right.

This area can be accessed by crawling through the cave and following the buttress 50m up hill. Alternatively it can be accessed from the lookdown carpark by walking over the ridge to NE.This is far quicker if you want to start in this area first.

Start with big moves straight up arete. Starting up crack is only grade 15.

Juggy start, crux last move.

Description from ROCK Mag #18. Route has not been found yet and may just be lost in time. 2018 About 50m L of Cardinal View Lookout Up slab to small tree, then follow line of six BRs up steep wall.

From the cave area, continue downhill for another 20m. Take care when setting up for top rope on the project.

A short, steep arete next to the approach track. Needs a few more bolts to finish, still a super fun project with some great moves.

Up the obvious crack, then back right to lower offs.

5m right of the arete project is another punchy little sport route.

Start in a crack 5m right of Blue Rock Party. Once onto the slab, continue straight up. Final moves are up the left hand side of blocks below the lower offs. Often done as an alternative to walking back up to the cave. Can be done as top rope using the lower offs located on the ledge looking down from the cave.

Starts 5m right of Sloth On Up. Dance your way up the slab to lower offs. Often done as an alternative to walking back up to the cave. Can be done as top rope using the lower offs located on the ledge looking down from the cave.

Continue west along contour from Below the Cave.

Great climb, up arete, into the crack then back out for a powerful side pull/mantle using finger crack. Smear up to double ring loweroffs

Revamped as a sporty on brackets

FA: Mike Law Smith

Start just below the S shaped gum tree. Be prepared for committing moves all the way to the top.
