Moonarie is one of Australia’s most spectacular crags for rock climbing. Situated on the rim of Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, it is surrounded by sweeping arid inland views. Superb rock and loads of fantastic quality routes make it easily South Australia’s premier crag. Moonarie offers a varied trad climbing experience, with a good range of intermediate to hard routes and a few sport routes. The rock has a similar feel to Mt Arapiles, with the same mixture of natural gear and the occasional bolts. Moonarie is a magnet for climbers of all ability levels from across the state, around Australia and the world. 

“It is the feelings of space and the timelessness of this ancient land that makes such an impression. These feelings are heightened by the adventurous nature of the climbing here. As one sits high up on a belay ledge after an engrossing pitch, looking out into the vastness of the land, gazing at the arid mountain ridges stretching away into the distance. The clarity of the light, the vividness of the colours all around, the translucent sky above, all restore and enrich the soul.” —Rob Knott
