I always thought Bungonia was just like it had a layer of graphite powder over everything.

The mining of limestone behind the facade that is the north wall, doesn't help with dust in the area.

Was at Stapylton on Saturday and it was raining sideways, so we walked in to Sentinel Cave. We couldn't get up there, as the rock gully before the traverse was a raging waterfall. Does that happen often? is there any alternative access?

It must have really been bucketing down! I've only seen it do that a couple of times. Usually there is no running water there at all. You could access it from above by going far around left (past Sentinel Wall), up a vegated ramp and scramble down from above. Probably a bit of a pain really.

Thanks Neil, yeah it was really coming down.
With another shabby forecast for this weekend I might need to make a return trip.

This post mentions Bundaleer as a wet weather option - which routes stay dry when its bucketing down? Just the super steep ones in the cave?

If it's really wet you could always take the dog for a walk instead ...

Yere - not much - just the left hand side cave with Angular Perspective. Manic Depressive stays dry in most weather.

Not to forget the Ogive, I've been on it whilst it was chucking it down. Rain missed me by about 15 metres! I don't think it is going to rain this weekend though. looks mid 20s and sunny to me.
