There's a lot of rock in the Flinders, and much of it has been checked out by Colin Reece and others. But he kept coming back to Moonarie because it's the best there is. Climbing in national or conservation parks in SA is "legal" at four designated areas: Morialta, Onkaparinga, Waitpinga and Moonarie. Beyond that, it's a question of climbers' judgement as to the worth of a crag versus the risk of upsetting the authorities. In my view, bolting and/or publicizing routes in Brachina Gorge next to a popular tourist road would seriously threaten the good relationship we enjoy with the Flinders NP management. This would be one reason why long-term local activists (eg. Reece, Barker, Neagle, Witham, etc.) have mostly concentrated their efforts in the Moonarie area. Explore, take a rope, do some, err, "really steep bushwalking" in Brachina, Edeowie or a thousand other places, and have a good day as Neil did above. But I suggest leaving it at that in areas that aren't "legal".
