Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.

Summary

Caution, this is not a "Sports Crag" The area is remote, mobile phone coverage is patchy at best. In the event of an accident the logistics of raising a rescue are immense.

Description

Cliffs are sand stone with some later hardening from volcanic actions.

Access issues

There are significant sensitive cultural areas in the south of the park. Do NOT climb near the tourist tracks, picnic areas, on private land or any where you may make a bad impression. If you are unsure don't do it till you gain more knowledge ie. use some common sense

Approach

Follow the signs from the turn off 12 km north of Monto. Use a map if you have trouble.

Where to stay

There are 2 caravan parks in the area or you can stay in Monto and drive in daily. 25 km one way.

Ethic

Trad climbers have been active at Cania since the 70's. Rob Staszewski claims to have climbed ~100 routes and Brisbane Rockies are rumoured to have have established a similar number. No doubt others have been busy there too. (Of course, all are encouraged to post their routes here.) It's likely that some routes currently being claimed have been climbed before. Please keep this in mind when bolting. There are plenty of unprotected walls ripe for bolting but please leave naturally protected lines to those able to climb them in trad style. That way everybody gets to live their dream and we hopefully avoid conflict with the old guard. - JL
