Bungonia Gorge in summer?
9:37:41 PM
Is Bungers a good summer destination? What's the beta for the shady side? Is there a good online guide?

Also how useful are doubles on a scale from 0 (I'm at Nowra and what the hell is a double?) to 10 (I'm climbing the North face of the Matterhorn and I need doubles)?

9:17:27 AM guide is a about as good a guide as you will find. I think the canberra climbing club also hosts a PDF copy of the original early 90s print guide. Generally bungonia can get hot but shady side is ok. Strangeness is the pic of the routes there. Doubles fairly useful - a 7. Especially since you'll need two ropes to rap off anyway.

Early starts.

If its 40 and not a puff of breeze it goes without saying you're stuffed.

As Neil mentioned north wall. This includes chicken wall. Polenta pumper wall cops a fair bit of shade. Wst pitch of siblings area can make a cool wind tunnel, nearly always in the shade. That first pitch is a good one btw. Iron curtain to supergiant in the mornimg, rap off when the sun hits.

Bouldering in the upper gorge.

The north black range isn't too far away if it looks too warm.

Have you bouldered the big arete under the wingercarerbee bridge?

Give me a shout if you're after someone to climb with, I'm totally psyched for more Bungonia.

I've only climbed that 24 next to Palenta Pumper at The Gorge (I don't remember its name), because Strangeness and Charm was too wet when I was there.

Oh, and the Deep Water Soloing with Neil, JengA and Dana afterwards... Yes, DWS at the Gorge in flood.
