Wingello is a secret crag... No one is supposed to know!

Worst kept secret going ...
~> "east" said team shire!

Wingello isn't real big, and neither is the 'developed' cliff area, ... or its height for that matter given its proximity to ___________ and ________*!


(*... other secret spots).

~>Lucky you don't have to get forum permission to even talk about it, but I won't mention it further or else the mods might lock the thread.

I was climbing with a firey at Kambah ACT a few weeks ago and he reckons the recent bushfires may have torched the crag. Has anyone been out to see if it's damaged?

Don't look at the .......... website for an access description (hehehe)

Its at a cliff in Wingello. Somebody found out about where it was it was, so the place had to be burnt. "The crag that does not exist" no longer exists...

The obvious orange wall is "Supa Fun Happy" Wall.

Considering Dave the dude was there on the first recon of the crag that might be a good source...re fires I think they may have missed them......just....good time to hunt for new crags though around there...just dont wear white.

The township of Wingello is 7klm east of the Hume Hwy in between Marulan and Sutton
Forest. The cliffs are located on the escarpement below the firefighters memorial at the
eastern edge of Wingello State Forest. To find the cliffs turn into Forest Rd (100m south
of the Store) and drive in an easterly direction on dirt roads that eventually deteriorate (a
4wd vehicle is advisable) through Wingello State Forest until you find the carpark at the
firefighters memorial. Continue by walking down the fire trail below the memorial for 5
mins until you find foot tracks and access gullys that lead to the cliffs.

to pre-empt any issuing of fatwas; you only need google wingello + climbing + directions

Is that how the recent fire in the area started? Possibly disposing of the body of the last person to be so informed?

Hmm. Was Ivan Robert Marko Milat a climber from that area?
:-P

Dont bother going out there until it cools down a bit unless you want to become snake food or carbonised.

Which crag at Wingello? The old secret one or the new really secret one that I'm not even allowed mention here?

Are you talking about the new secret one that WW and WW&S braved snakes to-
~ or the other new secret one that is just around the corner from it?

Second last photo looks like the bastard love child of a chopper, a rhino and a 1,000 gallons of fire engine paint!!

As Hawkman said said, don't contemplate going there until things cool down a bit. It is a f#ucking oven in summer. Even with an early start you will get baked. Added to that, the Brown Snakes and Budgy sized March Flies will eat your arse.

It is a very good winter crag though.

I'm not saying this to try and put people off and maintain an air of secrecy. I'm saying this so people don't waste a day there now, when they could wait until autumn/winter and have an excellent time there. I'm not exagerating - it's not a summer crag.

Once upon a time, it was MY secret crag* until I mentioned the area on CragX. I will keep my mouth shut next time.




*I think M9 may have been there before me.
