Access: Orroral Fire and Bimberi Wilderness Closure

The Orroral Valley Fire, which began on the 27 January, has been declared extinguished as of 27 February 2020. The fire burnt over 80% of Namadgi National Park, which remains closed until further notice. This includes all the crags in this section.

The Bimberi Wilderness (a remote part of southern Namadgi) was also closed due to fire risk until further notice. Please respect this closure. Most of the crags under this section (Mount Gudgenby, Mount Scabby, Rendezvous Creek Pinnacle etc.) are within the Bimberi Wilderness area. For more information please see https://www.environment.act.gov.au/home/home-news-listing/bimberi-wilderness-closed-for-public-safety

Description

Multiple small boulder clusters spread out across a wide open valley. Some nice easy granite climbs from 2 - 6 metres, with plenty of potential for more.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Anywhere from 5 to 40 minutes, depending on which boulders have taken your fancy. Mostly flat and easy approaches through open grasslands. Enjoy the mountain scenery on the way. Watch out for black snakes and wild dogs.

History

View historical timeline

Following discussions with ACT rangers to confirm access at the time, about 20 - 30 routes were developed in 2017. There is a significant Aboriginal rock art site at the end of the Yankee Hat Walk, obviously please do not put any routes on these boulders.
